Predators in Alabama?

Discussion in 'Predators and Pests' started by LittleLady98, Mar 3, 2011.

  1. I can't find many predators for AL on the internet...Does anyone know of predators that I should be wary of other than hawks? (I have come VERY close to losing small kittens to them...and I think a hawk killed one of my other kittens, I miss him too!!!)

    I'm positive you have raccoons, coyotes, fox, weasels, opossums and of course, roaming domestic dogs and cats and probably bears. You have mostly the same as we have here in GA.

    I agree with Speckledhen. Alabama is close to Ga. And we have all those here.
  5. OH NO!!!!!! I don't have bears and bobcats where I live!!! I'm near B'ham!!!!! If I EVER see those it'll be in the zoo!

  7. I have seen foxes and coyotes near B'ham...but not too close to my part of the area. I hope I NEVER lose any of my chickens that kind of way!!! *GULP*

    I have bears here, so you do there. And I've seen a bobcat crossing the road in broad daylight a couple miles away. Trust me, you don't think you do, but you do have them.
