Professor David Cassuto on bobcat sightings in Westchester

David N. Cassuto, JD, PhD, is expert in animal law, board member of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and founder of the Animal Blawg (animalblawg.wordpress.com), a blog focusing on animal law, policy and ethics.

Said Cassuto, “While it’s understandable that some people find it unnerving, the appearance of this cat is a victory for biodiversity. Any actions taken should account for both the opportunity and the risks that such animals embody. Those actions should also comply with the law. It bears remembering that car travel presents a far greater danger to people than this cat ever will. So, if there is indeed a mountain lion in our midst, we should celebrate nature’s resilience even as we take common sense measures to safeguard both people and the cat(s).”

Jackson Morris, senior policy advisor at the Pace Energy and Climate Center, comments in with WAMC on the radio story, “NYS Faces Complicated Budget Process As Deficit Looms.” With New York State facing a historical deficit, environmental issues could potentially take a back seat in the upcoming budget process.

Morris encourages citizens to speak up regarding the importance of environmental issues and how they need to be implemented into the upcoming budget.
