Attention is focused on the dilemmas facing many state and local officials-how to deal effectively with the animal control problems of an urban environment given the low priority attached to finding a solution. Animal population growth has made necessary serious trade-offs among the increasingly limited financial resources of most municipalities, with the problem made more severe by official indifference or neglect. The differing goals of public and private agencies have caused varying degrees of overlap and duplication in both sectors, along with competition among private agencies for financial support.
