Electric Age Wildlife

Many local residents have sensors which turn on yard lights or driveway lights. At night, as the raccoons and skunks and deer, (not to mention the stray dogs and wandering cats,) make their way around the neighborhood, they often trip the lights. I wonder what they think when the night is suddenly illuminated? They don't seem to be particularly surprised. They certainly don't avoid the houses which have such lights. Perhaps they have adjusted to the phenomenon, and accept it as simply a natural part of their environment. And, if so, would they be surprised if the lights quit working? Something to ponder. But, to me, it is strange to be living in an age when wild creatures can turn on the lights.
