There is no denying the fact that humans should maintain distance from the wild animals as they can be life-threatening but it is also true that not every wild animal is harmful for humans. We, humans should accept the fact that the lives of these wild animals is as valuable as our lives and we don’t have any right to take their lives until and unless they become a threat for ourselves.
However, an incident has happened in Oregon which has made many people especially animal lovers very angry and sent them in a shocking state.
