Many wild animals enter into attics because they are dark and relatively warm. Attics provide heat and safety - two out of the three things that wild animals need to survive (the other being nutrition). Moreover, most residential buildings are located near nutrition sources such as garbage bins for households and restaurants as well as ravines with creeks. So animals that den in an attic space have access to all three things that they need to survive.
