In western Europe we don't have as much wildness than in other areas, such as the Americas.

in the wood not far from my home we can find:
Sangliers (wild boars)
Wild boar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chevreuils (Roe Deers)
Roe deer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hérissons (Hedgedogs)
Hedgehog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
And a few others... a bit poor

Random rodent-like animals that you never see except when they become roadkill. And racoons, a lot of them. Actually, I think I have seen more dead racoons than living racoons in my life. Its a frequent sight on a big road close to my house. So I now they are around.

I have a pear tree in my yard, which attracts a lot of deer and foxes.

I have also seen many rabbits and hawks, especially while biking on a trail that runs near my home. And cardinals, lots of them. I guess that's why they are the state bird of Virginia!

And my wife once ran into a coyote while walking outside at night.

I live in a small town in Central Iowa and I have never seen so many rabbits as I see here. Literally, when I go for a walk, I see them everywhere.

As a result of the rabbit overpopulation, we are starting to see more coyotes around town.

We have a white tail deer population of about 200000 before hunting season and it usually drops to about 100000 after hunting season.

For people who are against guns and hunting, if it was not for our hunters, this white deer population in this state would be in the millions and no, white deer are not like Bambi, more like a pest.

They cause a lot of destruction especially crop damage. We are the biggest producer of corn in the world, so white tail deer annually damage over $20 million worth of corn in this state alone.

In parks saw a lot of red squirrels, sometimes hedgehogs. About reservoirs saw grass-snakes and the seagull, at that that up to the sea of 500 km. In suburb saw a hare.
Recently for the first time has seen a turtle.


Dogs, cats, bats, rats and other cockroaches - I think they not a wild

Currently working on the 20th floor of a newly built high-rise in Vienna. Apparently, a couple of European kestrels are living on the same building. Pretty cool to watch them while looking for prey way down below.
