KIDS SPEAK OUT ABOUT HUMAN AND ANIMAL CONFLICTS ON NICK NEWS WITH LINDA ELLERBEE "DANGEROUS CROSSROADS: HUMAN ANIMAL VS. WILD ANIMAL," PREMIERING SUNDAY, NOV. 13, ON NICKELODEON

NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2011 - In a world where humans keep expanding their territory - what happens when humans and wild animals increasingly try to occupy the same space? Nick News with Linda Ellerbee hears from kids about human conflicts with wild animals including prairie dogs, coyotes, geese, deer, bears and antelope in the half-hour special, "Dangerous Crossroads: Human Animal vs. Wild Animal," premiering Sunday, Nov. 13, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. Beginning Monday, Nov. 14, the special will be available on Nick.com.

"Human animal conflict with wild animals will likely continue," said Linda Ellerbee. "But there's no argument on this point: relations between people and animals are not equal. Wild animals can't fix these problems. Maybe humans can't either, but some kids are trying."

Shelby, 12, lives in Anaheim, Calif. where there's a problem with coyotes. "Now they're coming into Anaheim and killing our pets." "We alerted everyone and we raised enough money to hire our own trapper and the humane society will come and put them to sleep."

Lily, 16, from Calabasas, Calif. believes the coyote trappings are cruel and somewhat useless. "If you trap one, more coyotes actually move in to take its place so you never actually solve the problem," said Lily.

In suburban New Jersey, the black bear population is growing, but there's not much land left for the bears, which were there first. "People are scared because they think bears are going to attack," said Christian, 12, of Kearny, NJ. "It's too bad, but if it's between humans and the bears, some of the bears are going to have to go."

In an attempt to ease the co-existence of humans and wild animals, Isabel (14) and Sierra (13) with the National Parks Conversation Association in Yellowstone National Park work with other kids to take down or modify fences to make it easier for pronghorn antelope to roam more freely and get to their food resources. "Animals can't speak," said Sierra. "We have the voice and we have that power to make a difference."

"It's not only pronghorn being affected by people who are putting stuff in their way, it's animals all around the word being obstructed by people's actions," said Sierra. "I definitely think animals should have rights," said Isabel.
