Student organizations would be very beneficial in dealing with the feral animal population on campus. They would help limit the population by raising money to have the animals spayed and neutered. They could also help find homes for the animals. On a university campus, there is a lot of discarded food which entices feral animals to stay. They could also be involved in education to their peers about where to properly discard food.
Student organizations should be formed on campus that deal with the plight of feral animals on school property. If there are a group of feral animals living on school property they may be targeted for kill or capture because these animals may be a nuisance to students and faculty who live or work on the campus. Feral animals can multiply quickly and may be noisy. Possible solutions could be adopting the animals or placing them in shelters.
There are so many animals that are homeless, being abused, and neglected that more people need to step up and help them. We have to be their voices. And if a group of students want to come together to help feral animals and give the a chance at life I am all for it. Millions of animals die every year in shelters, that needs to stop. More people need to become proactive for those who can not speak for themselves, like animals.
Feral animals need to be dealt with by experts. They can carry dangerous diseases, including rabies, and can injure or maim quite easily. Students may think they have the experience to deal with the "cute animals," but they don't. It is dangerous and stupid to allow inexperienced students an opportunity to either deal directly with such animals or to formulate policy and procedure on how to deal with such animals.
Some wild animals are a nuisance. Raccoons are cute with their little human looking hands. However, they are also well known for being vandals and generally a problem. Should students become active in their treatment, relocation, or removal? They can if they want. That is a difficult controversy to become known for. You will have great difficulty arguing about the relocation of a raccoon or the euthanizing of a rabid fox.
