This shouldn't come as a surprise to ANYONE who's actually paid attention over the last decades.

Pam is right, this is not surprising. What is surprising that this hasn't been discussed previously.

Biologists have been tracking animals and seeing this for years! I'm so happy to see this get to the news here! They need space to live forests are their homes to many 10000's of animals.

Humans ... the worst of all species. Not only are they hellbent on destroying themselves, but also everything in their wake. Stay tuned, coming sooner than later, the point of no return (corrective action) looms large.

There's only one species of mammal that should be endangered, us. Leave the animals alone!
