Bears in the Backyard: Big Animals, Sprawling Suburbs, and the New Urban Jungle

by Edward R. Ricciuti Author

As cities and suburbs sprawl, and conservation efforts enable wildlife populations to recover, we are beginning to see a problem with large wild animals appearing on the streets and in our own backyards. While it may be thrilling to see a cougar right outside your apartment building, the reality is that these large predators can bite, scratch, maim, and even kill. In this book, you can learn about the cutting-edge research as to why these predators are coming back into human territory, how it impacts all of us, and how we can learn to deal with it - for both our safety and for the protection and conservation of these animals.
