I was on the bus the other day and I felt something brushing against my legs I looked at my feet and it was a cat! He jumped up next to me and everyone else on board was like "why the heck are you bringing a cat on a bus!"
Unexpected, perhaps, but I don't think that counts as "wildlife." Unless it was a bobcat or a South American ocelot.

Few years back, my wife and I encountered a young male bear on the Appalachian Trail in the Shenandoah.
JOOC, how did you know it was a male? I wouldn't want to get close enough to a wild bear to be able to tell its sex!

I've seen birds of prey circling my neighborhood before, in the summer, but they were kestrels. This was the first time I've seen a merlin, let alone one in action.
You must really know your birds. I wouldn't know a merlin falcon from a Ford Falcon.
