Even in cities, bears raid our bird feeders, coyotes breed in our cemeteries, and raccoons raid our trash. Why are wild animals finding our cities attractive? The guest on this episode of Inquiry is PETER S. ALAGONA. He is an environmental historian, conservation scientist, nature-culture geographer, and professor of Environmental Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His new book is THE ACCIDENTAL ECOSYSTEM: PEOPLE AND WILDLIFE IN AMERICAN CITIES.
