Paradox of Government

The food stamp program, administered by the is Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever in its history.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the 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.

Is there a paradox in philosophy between the Departments of Agriculture & Interior?

Perhaps we reduce the cost of government by transforming the jobs there into low paying positions without pensions that will be provided to people unable to find real productive jobs. This will reduce the cost of government and lower the cost of just feeding the animals who have become dependent.
