As our wildlife’s natural habitats continue to be encroached by human expansion, wild animals have no choice but to adapt to living closer to humans. The least we can do is to try to adapt to living with them as well. After all, they were here first.
If you are experiencing a wildlife conflict, consider the causing factors. Wild animals may take up residence in your backyard because you have inadvertently made your yard attractive to them. It could be the trash you left out, the garden you planted, the warm structure you provided or the predator free area you have provided with your fence.
Here are some suggestions for dealing with wildlife conflicts through humane and non-invasive means.
