Never said anything about multi-story government housing - nice try strawman
Populations of apex predators rise and fall with the availability of food. When their oprey has a boom in population, so do they. When their prey numbers fall, so do theirs.
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” - Hunter S. Thompson
Lions have been seen in Tucson & Phoenix (mostly @ night) the last few years. They are not afraid of humans, humans who don't hunt them aren't a threat & are much weaker than them. Since Comifornica outlawed hunting them attacks on humans increased. Figure it out.
"He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment & buy one" Jesus - Luke 22:36
When the food source for the predators goes down they lose their fear of man and go suburban for the easy food sources like, dogs, small dogs, domestic and feral kitties. Coyotes are all over Nashville. I have seen them squashed on the interstate within 1.5mi of the honky tonk district. Central Park in NYC has coyotes. How did they get there? They had to traverse bridges and high rise buildings.
Wolves are repopulating the East, with and without our help. Bears have moved into my area, they were gone for a very long time. The elk have been placed in Smokey Mountains National park. Yipee! We don't have enough problems with the ever growing whitetail populations committing suicide on our car and truck grilles. Elk are much larger.
Bigs cats are in TN, IN, IL, OH, and I am sure soon if not already PA and the rest of the North East.
Neighbor kid told me some of his friends were duck hunting in a boat. Feral hogs were swimming into the pond, or lake. They shot them at point blank range with steel bird shot in their heads. None died.

Some here might need to re-calibrate their sarcasm detector.
Just wait until they restrict access to remote areas because some idiot or his greedy family sue because there wasn't a sign posted at the parking area that said "enter at your own risk, things in here might eat you!"
Wish I was joking but I think it was last year that a family was killed, washed away in a flash flood while at a swimming hole. Of course it's a shame but instantly there was an uproar from all the usual sources that there should have been signs. How many signs and for how many potential eventualities do you put signs up for.
The back areas are amusing but not amusement parks enter at your own risk!
When I am out I hope to see wildlife. Most times they see or hear me at 50 yds or more and run off. Fine by me. I know the risks and I accept them
For those who live in rural settings please be careful, For all those who have kids. Please be careful.
