NEW LONDON, Conn. -- Humans are more aggressively staking their claim as
suburbia continues its reach into animal habitats.

Jonathan Horne, for example, started a part-time business to fill his
spare time, becoming a licensed nuisance animal control operator.

All it took was a test, $100 and an advertisement in the phone book and on
his truck.

Business is booming for the 63-year-old retired senior vice president of
BankBoston. What was part-time is now a full-time business, Nuisance
Wildlife Evictions. In the spring and summer, Horne frequently logs
15-hour days setting traps and releasing or killing his prey.
