While some wildlife species are sensitive to urbanization, other wildlife exploit urban and suburban areas.  Common wildlife in urban and suburban areas include white-tailed deer, Virginia opossums, raccoons, rabbits, American Robins, Common Starlings and Northern Cardinals.  Large populations of these “urban exploiters” can damage houses, gardens and landscaping.   Management of urban wildlife populations generally involves manipulating habitat and resources (food, water, etc.) or removal of individuals. Several programs and agencies in Kentucky provide assistance of information on managing wildlife damage problems in urban areas.
