Synopsis

What's to be done about a jaywalking moose? A grizzly bear caught breaking and entering? A murderous tree?







We've never been good at sharing the planet... In the past, when wild animals 'broke the law', they might be given lawyers and put on trial. But now, what's the solution when nature gets in our way? In this fresh, funny and thoroughly researched book, dive into the weird and wonderful moments when humanity and wildlife bump up against one another.







Follow Mary Roach as she explores laser scarecrows, robo-hawks, human-elephant conflict specialists and monkey impersonators. Travel to the bear-busy back alleys of Aspen, the gull-vandalized floral displays at the Vatican and leopard-terrorized hamlets in the Himalayas, and discover hope for compassionate coexistence.
