Notice for Feeding Wildlife

Recently there has been an increase in the amount of skunk complaints received within Cranbury Township.  Residents, please take note that placing food for wild animals outside your home attracts skunks as well as feral cats, raccoons, possums, rats and other undesirable pests.  Since these wild animals may be carriers of disease, it is the Township's goal to discourage their presence by prohibiting the feeding of them.

Advisory from the Shade Tree Commission
