Wildlife can cause problems for homeowners, but their damage may not be protected by your policy.
A group of buzzards has plagued a family in Union. Over 30 of the birds use Ilene Browning’s roof as their home.
The buzzard’s talons have poked holes in Browning’s roof. The damage is not covered by a homeowner policy.
Homeowner’s insurance does not protect your home from damage from birds, rodents, or insects.
Browning wants to get rid of the buzzards, but they are protected by the federal government.
The Department of Natural Resources suggests shooting fireworks, putting spikes on the roof, or spraying the roof with pepper spray to help get rid of the birds.
You can face up to a $10,000 fine for harming buzzards.
