People invading animal habitat

Every week I read about people whining about the animals who live here.

Every week I read about people whining about the animals who live here.

People complain about deer who eat their flowers, birds who poop here and there and bears getting into trash. We better rush off and cull every living species except us humans.

People should know that animals were living here long before us and I am sure they are complaining about the overpopulation of humans in their homes.

The reason why deer are eating flowers, cougars are in our face and bears are in the trash is because we are taking away their homes.

But then we blame the animals and propose to shoot them all. Why not try a little compassion? Lock your garbage up, and put fences up around your gardens.

The animals are putting up with us destroying everything they call home and its them that usually pay with their lives because of it.

Why do we need to keep ruining animals lives by stripping them of all they have?
