Animal welfare

7. Wildlife information

Local authorities are placed in a sensitive position having to balance the conflicting attitudes of people living with wildlife.

On one hand, some residents like living in partnership with wild animals and on the other, householders who suffer from problems call for their physical control.

Our policy is to advise residents on the management of any wildlife problem rather than undertake control.
