Imagine what would happen to a herd of zebras if 500 lions moved into their territory. By letting our dogs and cats roam free in wilderness areas near homes, apartments, and businesses, we affect the ecosystem by adding more predators than it can support – this may result in disastrous consequences for prey species. Songbirds, lizards, small snakes can become easy prey for cats. Be sure to keep an eye on small pets – coyotes may be on the hunt.
