The above link is to an article in the NWF newsletter archives that highlights the dramatic interactions we sometimes have with large, wild carnivores who come to our yard. As dramatic as these events can be, usually there is no reason to “call the cops”, which can prove fatal to the animal. People have been living with large, carnivorous animals for a very long time, and at this point in history, the animals are the ones who need a break. So follow the guidelines in this article to continue to have these magnificent animals living safely in our wild neighborhoods.
