Pest and feral animals

Many introduced fauna species have become pest animals, affecting local biodiversity and urban environments. Species such as foxes and common mynahs can harm native species and become a nuisance to humans.

Companion animals like dogs and cats that roam freely may also become a public nuisance and threaten native wildlife.
