    The animals dont have much of a choice do they now? We have and are destroying all their home teratory and some adapt the best they can. Some are quite destructive and dangerous to humans unless we educate the citizens on how to cohabitate.

    Coyotes and wolves are really no threat to humans in almost all situations.

    we did have a bear in the Twin Cities a summer or two ago and the police had it cornered and cordoned off and someone asked an officer if they could go pet it...silly humans...

    Hell I fear humans way more than I do a bear. Guarantee your chances of getting killed will more likely come from a human than any animal. Bank on it!

    I remember the tree huger's in Washington state shutting down the logging industry over the spotted owl. They claimed the owl's could live in an environment inhabited or disturbed by humans. Then they found mating pairs of owl's living/ nesting on top of K-Mart.

    The logging industry in Washington has continued to cut more and more board feet of lumber. Some areas were set aside for habitat protection.

    Well...it just might be that the animals are having problems finding food in their territory because of droughts as well as more people starting to live in their territory...eventually we'll have to get used to "wild animals" being around us more...{apart from politcians of course}...

    It's a concern....but call animal control. I'll start worrying I have to compete for jobs with animals. See that Bear on "The Cleveland Show"?

    This is a bad thing, but the most practical thing to do is simply repair buildings and discourage animals's from living there. No subsidized crony capitalist companies that are destined to fail us all, please.

    Here in Salem, Oregon, population 150,000, it's not unusual to see raccoon, opossums,deer, running and living in populated neighborhoods. The coyotes are coming further into town and the occasional cougar wanders in. This town is wide spread and developers continue to claim more of the surrounding woodlands. I think the animals are beginning to growl, "Enough is enough."

    I have urban coyote's running around our neighbor hood and we are just a couple of miles shy of St. Paul, MN and they are eating our pets to boot. I can't believe how sneaky they are. I open the sliding door and they just shut up and scurry off

    The last statement reinforces my position on firearms: animals' ancestors feared being shot so they tended to shy away from humans. Hmm. If all responsible humans were armed and used their weapons properly, then animals and criminals would stay in check to keep from being shot!

    Absolutely. And woodtick, I bet you are one of those that refuse to eat wild meat, only drink pasteurized milk, and pretend the steak you are enjoying for dinner was born in cellophane in the grocery.

    @culinary Don't be silly everyone knows steaks aren't born in cellophane, they are wrapped in cellophane, after the butcher gets them from the garden where they grow.

    All my problems? Hardly (chuckle)! However, guns do give me the upper hand when hunting for food/sport, and a gun in MY hand turns a wanna-be robber/car-jacker/criminal into a corpse.
