Nature Gains Upper Hand in Detroit

In 2005, Detroit earned two dubious honors. It was listed as the most liberal city in the country and took second place on the list of the most dangerous cities in the United States. I don't consider that a coincidence. People are leaving by the thousands, fleeing what has become a failed city. What the corrupt politicians started, the gangs are finishing. And now, nature is taking over.

I used to see all kinds of wildlife within the city limits when I worked graveyard shift in Kansas City. Skunks, foxes, deer. Once, I even saw a small pack of wolves.

I didn't see it myself, but a woman I worked for told me she saw a mountain lion roaming around her yard just a half mile or so outside the city limits there. Also, a mountain lion was killed by a car on I-29, between downtown KC and KCI airport. That was in the news.

Living on the edge of the Cleveland National Forest, we get all kinds of wildlife around here. Coyotes are, by far, the most prominent. It was building up a bit around us, and I'm sure will start up again when the economy does. It's nice to know we won't necessarily lose our preferred "wild" neighbors. :)
