People deliberately introduced some animals such as pheasants, starlings and rock doves. Other animals, such as the house mouse and Norway rat, came in accidently as stowaways. Introduced animals often can be compared to an invading army. With only a few exceptions, these alien animals compete with and displace native animals.
