Companion Vs. Other Animals
Comments by Gary Loewenthal - 4 Aug 2007

A starving animal in a shrinking habitat may become desperate. But the number of break-ins is miniscule compared to the amount of wildlife we displace and kill. Of course one should take precautions. Some of those "break-ins" are opportunistic, hungry animals walking through open doors.

A more lasting solution may be to curb our own so-far relentless resource grab. Each year, there is less land and fresh water for wild animals, as we bulldoze and pave over their homes, replace native wildlife with cattle, and plow under native grasses and plants to grow corn as livestock feed. Also, we shoot, poison, and trap millions of native animals, usually for pleasure or in an aim to increase profits - which often come from killing yet more animals.
