SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) – Sioux City leaders will consider a measure that would make it illegal to feed deer and wild turkeys within city limits.

The Sioux City Journal reports  that the City Council will vote on the proposed ordinance on Monday. Violators would be fined.

Assistant City Attorney Connie Anstey says the measure is meant to reduce traffic accidents and damage to plants caused by the wild animals.

In July, about a dozen residents from a northern area of the city told the council that deer pose a problem in their area. Drought conditions this summer forced the animals into Sioux City neighborhoods.

The council considered a similar ban in 2010, but the measure was opposed by people who wanted to feed the animals.
