Em 1902, o Presidente Theodore Roosevelt poupou a vida de um urso negro – e levou a uma nova mania de brinquedos de pelúcia chamados de "ursos do teddy." O escritor Jon Mooallem analisa essa história e pede para considerarmos como os contos sobre animais selvagens possuem consequências reais nas chances de sobrevivência de uma espécie, e do mundo natural em geral.

Jon Mooallem is the author of "Wild Ones: A Sometimes Dismaying, Weirdly Reassuring Story About Looking at People Looking at Animals in America." Full bio
