ZZ Hazards To Wildlife


Charlottesville Virginia has a good policy on wildlife.
If one has a birdfeeder or keeps nonsecure garbage
cans or dumpsters, one is attracting wildlife and
legally responsible for the results.

Around the country are many apartment building
complexes in which the dumpsters are not secure,
nor are there any industrial garbage disposals.

Many hazards to raccoons, squirrels, and birds
result.

1. The creatures are crushed by commercial
waste collectors' trash compacters.
2. They are also often crushed when
apartment building residents
don't look inside as they drop tv's
or other heavy objects into the dumpsters.
3. While the animals are eating from
the dumpsters, they can be poisoned by
rotting meat, fish or dairy products.
4. The animals can be trapped at the
bottom of 6 foot dumpsters.
5. In attempting to climb out of dumpsters,
the animals can fall hard onto the metal below.
5. Apartment building residents often
don't look inside as they drop tv's
or other heavy objects into the dumpsters.
