How to Live with Wildlife

For many people, country living is a dream. The quiet tranquility of chirping birds and babbling streams are the perfect haven from the hectic pace of the city or even the stress of suburban life. If you're fortunate to find an escape in the countryside, though, be aware that your neighbors may be a little on the wild side. Each year, wild animals harass tens of thousands of homeowners in the United States. About 8,000 people alone suffer from venomous snakebites. Countless more are sprayed by skunks or hassled by raccoons. But there are many ways to live in harmony with nature and still enjoy your country home.
