Local Alabama governmental agencies, also known as Animal Control service, have more of informative and educational
purpose than an effective one. They may take care of some local issues mostly regarded to dogs or cats, but
for wildlife issues, some other solutions need to be found and performed. The Birmingham animal services
doesn´t claim any ownership or control over wild animals within their boundaries. Therefore, any damage the
animals may cause isn´t their responsibility. There are no laws or rules for them to be obligated in any kind
of native wild animal removal. All of that falls on behalf of homeowners. However, they do help residents with
issues mentioned above to receive the right information and knowledge to act beneficial for all parties

People need to start thinking differently and not often act out of fear. The solutions to their problems are often quite
simple and nondramatic. The problem solving starts with homeowners and their way of living. A lot of inconveniences may be
explained by simple actions as not providing easily accessed food and water to Birmingham animals. It´s just simple as that if they
