Based on years of practical experience and research, and informed by the California Center for Wildlife's commitment to humane treatment of animals, "Living with Wildlife" traces the evolution of attitudes toward wildlife and provides sensible guidelines for co-existing with animals encountered around the home and in wild areas. It is both a comprehensive reference to common North American wildlife and a guide to resolving - in the most humane ways possible - common conflicts that arise from human-wildlife contact. Included are invaluable tips on what to do when: You head up to the attic to investigate strange noises, and find that a family of raccoons has taken up residence there Your prized rosebush is suffering from nightly "pruning" by deer Your child rushes into the house holding a fledgling bird found on the lawn after it apparently fell from its nest You find, upon returning from a day hike while camping in bear country, that your food supplies have been raided and are scattered all over the campsite Throughout, the book encourages humans to share their habitat and suggests ways to make residential environments more hospitable to wildlife.
