Common Palm Civet

Common palm civets are considered nuisances and are frequently killed or removed by plantation and orchard owners.

The most common problem that Asian palm civets cause humans is raiding of plantations and orchards for their fruits. Owners of these lands retaliate by killing them and persecuting them as pests. Also, civets that live in roofs or in barns make a lot of noises at night, making people think of them as a nuisance.

Even so, Asian palm civets seemsable to tolerate very high levels of persecution.
