Can you imagine what it would be like if wild animals were to invade US cities?

I know that rats are not considered wild animals, but the biggest cities are full of them. I still remember my trip to New York City in 2019. It was wonderful, but the moment I went to a park in the Upper East Side during the night, I was terrified by the number of rats that were walking in front of me.

You might be familiar with something like this if you live in a big city, but for me, a woman from a small town, it was shocking. However, what if I told you that a mountain lion was spotted walking carelessly down a sidewalk in San Francisco? That would probably make everyone feel scared.

As I previously said about tiny mammals like rats, other animals like mice, possums, and skunks have always lived in cities, having fun at night and resting their heads in sewers, bushes, and basements. Nothing new, right?

Well, the brand-new information is that bigger wild animals that once lived far away from people are now looking for a new potential home, which means towns and cities. Can wild animals invade us? Probably yes, probably not, but let’s begin and discover some encounters with these large animals on the streets.

  1. Yes, wild animals ARE in the cities!! I live in Huntsville, AL. Just two miles from the center of down town. I regularly have rabbits, foxes, turtles, (no streams, ponds or lakes in the immediate area), possums, raccoons, and small snakes, in my back yard. Along with about 15 different types of birds, including owls, hawks, eagles and falcons.
    No deer yet, but with the amount of wooded areas near by, I would not be surprised if they show up too!
    Alligators, coyotes, black bears, mountain lions, armadillos and deer have been reported within the city limits. Wow! Such an abundance of wildlife!!

  2. Just a minute! Who is invading whom? We have been steadily usurping the territories of the other beings who inhabit the planet. Clearly the more developed of creatures are now fighting back.

  3. Deer also carry ticks, which carry Lyme disease. Bambi is evil, and it, along with its relatives, should be wiped out.
