Due to heavy snow, deer-feeding OK'd in part of UP

Posted: Updated:

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) - The state is letting people feed deer in the southern Upper Peninsula because heavy early snowfall is making it harder for them to survive the winter.

The Evening News of Sault Ste. Marie says the feeding can start Wednesday.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is issuing permits for the special feeding. It covers Delta, Dickinson, Iron, Mackinac, Menominee and Schoolcraft counties and parts of Chippewa and Marquette counties.

The state permits supplemental feeding in the southern Upper Peninsula when heavy early snow suggests deer will experience winter stress. It normally allows feeding Jan. 15-May 15 in the Lake Superior snow belt.

DNR wildlife supervisor Terry Minzey says this winter "has started out substantially more severe than last winter," which saw heavy deer losses.

    Residents of a small Canadian island are being warned not to drink their well water because of potentially toxic algae in Lake Erie. The blue-green algae blooms causing the warning are the same stuff that contaminated the drinking water of about 400,000 people in the Toledo area earlier this month.
