I received this email today. Here is what it said:

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is actually proud of the fact it is distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals."
Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.

This ends today's lesson.

That's not really the reason they say don't feed the animals though. Mostly they don't want people feeding animals because it results in the animals approaching humans, which increases the chances of humans being bitten and the likelihood of animals wandering into camp sites. The introduction of a new food source can also effect animal populations and lead to other ecological issues.
