Just gives you a glimpse into the mind of the suburban idiot. As long as wildlife stays wild and out of their yard, they love the cuddly critters. Once they start eating Fluffy, dumping over trash cans or ripping something apart, they want it gone. Unfortunately, trying to explain the pros and cons of relocating certain animals to a majority of the public falls on deaf ears. All resource agencies put public safety at the top of any of their actions. Animals that become habituated to roaming the urban edge for food, can't be released into the wild unless they're chased, shot at with bean bags and taught to fear humans. If it comes back after that, well, that only ends on way.
