California drought may exacerbate wildlife-human encounters – Sacramento Bee

The scarcity of food in the wild has been blamed for unusual animal activity during California’s drought including a recent bear attack, mountain lion sightings and an uptick in orphaned animals.  Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.sacbee.com

GR:  We are seeing more deer and javelina at Coldwater Farm.  A general drought and a local groundwater decline are probably responsible.  Our ponds are shrinking every year now, and have new stains this year.  If the upstream town and farm keep pumping the water and adding wastes, the refuge we offer will eventually be lost.
