By Tim Harrison

Tim Harrison has been called to remove bears from apartments, lions from city streets, bats from swimming pools, pythons from workshops, and cougars from backyards. He has met, and rescued, alligators from local rivers, farm ponds, pet stores and basements. He has raised a Bengal tiger and has mothered wolves. Pythons call his Springboro address home. Yet Wild Times, a collection of his wildest "suburban safaris", wasn’t written to compete with reality TV. The stories are hair-raising, and sometimes frightening. But Tim’s goal is to let people know of the growing chance that they’ll be coming across an exotic or local wild animal as their population increases in suburbs across the country. Harrison is a twenty-year veteran police officer, firefighter, and EMT-paramedic for the City of Oakwood in Montgomery County, Ohio. His popular speaking programs are legendary. Finally, he’s wrestled his stories between the covers of a book.
