New balance

Letter writer proposes sending University of Victoria’s bunnies to cougar country.

As an animal lover, I realized long ago that my romantic, urban notions of nature bore no relation to the reality of the wild. The natural world consists of balance – predators and prey – and when this balance is upset, as with human settlements encroaching farther and farther into the backwoods, hungry cougars (and bears and wolves) venture farther and farther into human settlements.

So why not try to create a new balance of sorts, even though it may not be precisely what was there in the first place?
