Learn to co-exist with wildlife

Published in THE JOURNAL NEWS, 12/26/05:

Why is it the human species has no tolerance left for wildlife they deem a nuisance?

It is either the deer, the beavers and now again the geese ("What's good for the goose. . ." Dec. 15 article). It would be honorable of us to just be tolerant of other "living beings" we share this earth with.

We bulldoze and build and then wonder why they stand in our yard or park. We pride ourselves upon being the more "intelligent species" and yet all we want to do is eradicate instead of using non-lethal measures. Keith Cox of the Lake Secor Park District Advisory Board had a "great summer," but 30-plus innocent geese were slaughtered.

If you compare geese droppings to the toxic chemicals (pesticides) made in laboratories that are poisoning our earth and water; perhaps the humans are the real nuisance to our precious "Mother Earth." Animals are not perfect, and neither are humans. Let's give wildlife a break and try some compassion and tolerance. We have destroyed many of their homes where they also raise their young. The earth belongs to them also; let's not judge them so harshly.
