When critters crawl into your home, don’t fret! Call Michael the wildlife detective. He uses his special investigative skills to figure out which animals have decided to make your house their own and how to safely and humanely stop them in their tracks. Author Michael Birt, a wildlife biologist, shares with readers the importance of treating wild animals and nature with respect and kindness—even when they end up in unnatural spaces and cause inconvenience for their human neighbors. He highlights the importance of finding compassionate solutions to pesky problems and explains why some animals may wander from their wild homes into our own.
