Paris streets

I saw a report today from the Mirror saying that French told not to fear wolves roaming Paris streets as 'they only eat four-legged animals'.

That sort of encouragement doesn't comfort. Even if Parisians were OK with wolves that only ate pets, wolves still threaten everybody.

But who else is on the streets? I don't think wolves stand a chance. People can be very thorough when dealing with threats.

It seems to be a little fevered for them to describe this as wolves on the streets of Paris, when it is actually possible lone wolves in parks southwest of Paris. Europeans seem to get nervous obout things more quickly.

Critters move around a lot. We had a deer wind up in the State Capitol building. Another crashed through the window of the guidance counselor's office at the Sun Prairie high school. I haven't seen any coyotes, but I'll bet they're in town. I don't know Paris' transportation layout (only saw the airport), but if the parks abut the city or have slow-street connections, deer might show up there too. A quick googling suggests they aren't common, though.
