CONCORD (AP) - The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says 12 deer have been found dead in South Hampton, most likely the victims of eating human-provided foods.
They were found Friday in two groups in some woods in South Hampton. Necropsies on eight of them indicated they had died from complications caused by winter feeding.
Two deer were brought to the University of New Hampshire Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, which concluded there was evidence of a condition caused by a rapid change in diet.
An adult doe found dead in Dover in February is also believed to have died from supplemental feeding.
The department urges the public not to feed deer. A rapid change in diet to human-provided foods high in carbohydrates can reduce their ability to properly digest food.
