America’s Wildlife Problems a Recent Time Magazine Cover Story

Vertebrate Pests

Time magazine’s recent cover story focused on why wildlife in the U.S. needs stronger management.

| December 4, 2013

Time magazine’s cover story for its issue the week of Nov. 27 was “America's Pest Problem: It's Time to Cull the Herd,” and it focused on why wildlife in the U.S. needs stronger management.

The article noted that Americans now live, work and play in closer proximity to untamed fauna than any other generation of Americans in more than a century.

Some examples included in the article are:

“Faced with an outbreak of lyme disease and rising deer-related car accidents, the city council of Durham, N.C., authorized bow hunting inside city limits in November. Authorities in San Jose, Calif., in the heart of Silicon Valley, voted to allow hunting wild pigs within that city in October. Rock Island, Ill., one of the five Quad Cities on the Mississippi River, recently approved bow hunting in town, provided that it occurs in green spaces — golf courses, parks, cemeteries — or on private land.”
