Getting Cozy With The Local Wildlife

We love a good chat about the interactions between humans and animals. 

So we could not resist going into the vault to revisit an earlier interview with Lyanda Lynn Haupt, the author of a book calledThe Urban Bestiary

Just because we build highways and houses and displace animals does not mean they feel the need to leave their old habitats. 

So what's our response?  Do we exterminate or embrace, allowing the animals to live very close by? The author paid us a visit in 2013 and we replay that interview here.
