What Happens When Nature Breaks the Law?

51lusjuuiqs._sx326_bo1_204_203_200_.jpg

On Cool Science Radio, John and Lynn bring Mary Roach on the show.

 

Roach has written Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law…What should we do with a jaywalking moose? A bear caught breaking and entering? How about a murderous tree?

 

According to Roach, three hundred years ago, animals that broke the law would be assigned legal representation and put on trial. These days, the answers are best found not in the field of law but in science…cool science.
