Letter: Adopting ‘live and let live’ philosophy may be way to go


For 35 years, I’ve lived on Whidbey Island and consider the wildlife a blessing to be enjoyed.

Nothing has brought me more joy, over the years than watching a mother raccoon teach her young how to climb a tree, or watch her bathe them in my bird bath or move them when she fears danger.

I consider it an honor that deer families come and plonk down for an afternoon in the sun. I planted a huge veggie garden during my first year here and not one thing was nibbled on. Perhaps “live and let live” might be a philosophy for us all to follow.
