Wild Animals

Many Wild animals are cute and cuddly. They approach you and you feed them. They keep coming back and you keep feeding them. As they grow older they lose the ability to feed naturally because you have been feeding them for a long time. When you either go away for semester breaks, or leave the university entirely, they are unable to fend for themselves and many become weak and diseased. Often they will raid garbage cans or enter buildings in search of food. At this point they become aggressive and dangerous.




This is Florida and there are many animals that are cute as babies but become dangerous as adults. Alligators, raccoons, and wild cats to name a few. Do not feed them or approach them. If you see one acting strangely, notify the Department of Security and Safety and we will take the appropriate measures to ensure your safety.

Remember, wild animals are not household pets.
