Woman Feeds Friendly Wild Deer from Palm of Her Hand, But is It a Good Idea?

An Ontario woman got up close and personal with a few extra friendly wild deer, but is she hurting them without even knowing it?

Watch this incredible footage of them eating corn right out of the palm of her hand.

As outdoor enthusiasts, the thought of being this close to wild animals in their natural habitat can be exhilarating.

Though intentions may be innocent, feeding (especially hand-feeding) wild animals can be dangerous not only for you, but for the animal. The last thing you want is for wild animals to start associating you with food and becoming less reliant on what nature provides them.

The next time you set foot in the woods, pretend like you’re at a zoo. Heed the warnings and don’t feed the animals.
