The site refers back to Wild Shopping Carts, which is currently focused on carts found on Vancouver Island, but seeks sightings from around the world. I tend to think of these species as more feral than wild, myself, but I haven't studied them as extensively as the bloggers at these sites. Should you make any sightings in your area, please consider adding to the data being gathered at Wild Shopping Carts. Who knows, you may discover a rare or previously unidentified species!
