Thread: Will Alpacas affect wildlife?

  1. #1

    Will Alpacas affect wildlife?

    My mum has just brought a field, with a small woodland area that joins onto the end. We have just put about 5 Alpacas in the field, there are in a very large pen with a stable. My question is, do you think that it will affect the wildlife on the field? Like birds, foxes, rabbits and deer? Any help would be much appreciated.

    I would imagine deer would be less likely to be seen where the alpacas are , everything else would be as normal , although they may chase foxs off !, but if it makes your mother happy , thats all that matters, everything else is trivial.

    Foxes will be chased everything else is ok, I have fallow in with my llamas and they seem to get on ok, but then they are fenced in.

    how about a Fox Terrier?
