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.
