Living with wildlife

Should you or should you not feed the deer? Michelle interviews the star of the Cottage Life channel, Hope Swinimer, about how to live in harmony with cottage wildlife. And while we’re on the topic of nature, we revisit an essay about journalist Clive Thompson’s most perfect memory of the wilderness. One memory you may want to forget: stepping on a porcupine quill. Our quick tip reveals the secret to safe removal without a trip to the hospital.
