An article from Colorado provides some background material on bobcats; followed by one from Minnesota about three horses that were attacked by what is believed to be a cougar that may have clawed another horse recently. A town in Alberta, Canada, had problems with coyotes attacking pets and a bear at a Catholic school; while Massachusetts wildlife officials believe a coyote killed a dog. A Canadian singer from Toronto, Ontario, was killed by a pair of coyotes as she was hiking on a trail in Nova Scotia; but a Minnesota community's leadership has decided against awarding coyote bounties for now. An emaciated coyote that was spotted in downtown Spokane, Washington, was taken into custody by animal control officers; while an article from the San Francisco Chronicle provides a thumbnail sketch of wolves in Montana and Idaho in light of their delisting. A look inside Minnesota's Isle Royale National Park on Lake Superior is provided by the next article; followed by a brief look at wolves on that island. Wildlife and pet columnist Gary Bogue provides advice to Central Californian homeowners about dealing with raccoons. A young black bear who had been relocated 78 miles away from an Oregon town returned, only to be shot; and bear biologists in Maryland are keeping a close eye on the statewide bear hunt, which filled nearly half its quota on the first day alone. A father and daughter who were out deer hunting in Georgia got more than they bargained for when a 520-pound black bear showed up! A resident of Washington state is in trouble with the law over shooting a deer within city limits; and a deer that crashed through an Ohio automobile dealership's window had to be euthanized due to injuries. A white deer has been spotted in Chicago's suburbs; while an outdoorsmen from Granite Bay, California, pontificates on the issue of a proposed antlerless hunt. An Op-Ed piece from New Zealand weighs in on the debate over using 1080 poison on the overabundance of possums in that country; while Busch Gardens in Florida has provided a "dropping off" point for exotic pet owners' unwanted charges. And finally, a London-based animal rights group may be a victim of their own success in Bolivia, where a ban on animals in circuses has gone into effect and now homes must be found for all the animals!
