When living close to nature as we do on Sweeney Street,it is easy to assume that the greatest threat to the animals who inhabit our woods, gardens and yards is people. After all, it is people who initiate "bait and shoot" programs to "cull" the deer -- as if that were our right. But sometimes we become unwilling witnesses to the reality that an animal's greatest danger may come from animals other than people.
