Humans-Wildlife, A Universal Conflict

By Eugène Lapointe

Conflicts between Humans and Wildlife are not new and not limited to remote areas.

This has resulted in federal programs that have stolen authority and jurisdiction over these animals from State governments in the US, Provincial governments in Canada and national governments in the EU.
