BEARS IN THE BACKYARD (Countryman Press June 2014) Lions and tigers and bears…Well, perhaps not tigers, but mountain lions and bears, as well as coywolves, alligators, moose and other dangerous beasts once confined to far wilderness are showing up on the streets and in backyards of towns and cities.
