Man encroaching on nature?

Thanks to Tundra Comics for this great cartoon!
The comic strip is funny because it is an exaggeration, but it actually makes a good point. Working in wildlife removal everyday as I do, I often see animals adapting very well to human environments. Raccoons go into chimneys because in a way chimneys resemble burned out, hollow trees. Mud swallows build their nests on stucco and siding just as well as they do on cliffs, and skunks are as happy to eat out of garbage cans as they are to hunt and kill their own food. Happier, maybe, because the food source is reliable!
I love my job as a wildlife removal operator. I enjoy animals, and I do my best to treat them with respect as God’s creatures. I also get a lot of satisfaction out of helping people with wildlife animal control problems and restoring each person to the peace and comfort of a home or business unshared with wild animals.
If the dude in the comic strip were real, I like to think that I could resolve his conflict with the beaver dam in the swimming pool. Call me, swimming pool dude! 1-888-488-1415.
