SKU: 9780861543649 Categories: , , Tags: ,


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 what’s the solution now, as we humans increasingly dominate and don’t like it when nature gets in our way? In this fresh, funny and thoroughly researched book, Mary Roach delves into weird and wonderful moments when humanity and wildlife bump up against one another. Follow the author 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-vandalised floral displays at the Vatican and leopard-terrorized hamlets in the Himalayas, and discover hope for compassionate coexistence.
