Nuisance & Dangerous Wildlife

Western Washington is home to an abundance of wildlife.  Some, like rabbits, merely annoy us as they help themselves to our gardens.  Others, like coyotes, bears, and cougars, pose greater potential danger to human/pet safety and possible property damage.  As our urban areas expand into previously undeveloped areas, these wild creatures that now share our spaces have become habituated to living with humans and lost much of their fear of us.  Yet they remain masters of hiding in plain sight.
