Eastern Wildlife Damage Control Conferences


Date of this Version

February 1991


I present a compilation of wildlife damage data collected via a mail survey distributed to 146 county agents Alabama Cooperative Extension Service. A 55% response rate was obtained with 2 mailings. Snakes and rodents were the of most wildlife damage complaints. Regional differences in the number of complaints were observed for white-tailed (Odocoileus virginianus), coyotes (Cams latrans), and nine-banded armadillos (Dasypus novemcinctus). Information collection was used to: (1) determine the status of wildlife damage in Alabama from the perspective of the county extension agents; (2) educational programs; and (3) justify the production of wildlife damage management publications.
