The part of the US Midwest I live in is pretty rural for the most part. Nevertheless, in a city of over 50,000, it is very common to see possum, raccoon, owl, hawk, vulture, groundhog, deer, and to a lesser extent fox and coyote. Now in this area, we are seeing a resurgence of large cats (bob cat) and possibly even wolf, This probably has to do with the weird shifts in deer population over the last 100 years. First they were all killed off, so the predators left. Then they were protected, so they flourished, but people kept hunting the predators. Now they are so numerous that predator populations have been increasing. I hear that my state is actually releasing predators into the area in order to control the rampant "overbreeding" of deer. They are rather large and can be dangerous since they tend to wander across highways at inopportune moments. Them's good eatin' though.
