I disagree. If they can't adapt, they won't survive anyway. We can't do their adapting FOR them.

OTOH, we have absolutely no right to be surprised to find wild critters around our new homes which were built on top of their old homes.

.....and if WE can't adapt, WE won't survive. Part of that adaptation is not putting Fluffy the poodle out into the back yard as a kitty snack.
