‘ We could solve any real problems we have with these predators [cougars and coyotes] by dealing with them on an individual basis. But we didn’t: we demonize the whole species instead. In the end, both animals illustrate the need for better understanding of the wild in our lives — even our urban lives.’ Bringing Back The Dodo, 76.
