Grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars/ mountain lions,bobcats, wolverines, lynx, foxes, fishers and martens are the suite of carnivores that originally inhabited North America after the Pleistocene extinctions. This site invites research, commentary, point/counterpoint on that suite of native animals (predator and prey) that inhabited The Americas circa 1500-at the initial point of European exploration and subsequent colonization. Landscape ecology, journal accounts of explorers and frontiersmen, genetic evaluations of museum animals, peer reviewed 20th and 21st century research on various aspects of our "Wild America" as well as subjective commentary from expert and layman alike. All of the above being revealed and discussed with the underlying goal of one day seeing our Continent rewilded.....Where big enough swaths of open space exist with connective corridors to other large forest, meadow, mountain, valley, prairie, desert and chaparral wildlands.....Thereby enabling all of our historic fauna, including man, to live in a sustainable and healthy environment. - Blogger Rick

Research in Southern California has proven without a doubt that Bobcats to not favor habitat close-in to suburban and urban human domiciles............However, up the road from my home, this "Bob" made himself(herself) right at home outside a neighbors window............The biggest threat to Bobcats in human dominated landscapes is mange contractred through the feeding on chemically poisoned mice and rats.............DO NOT USE CHEMICAL RODENTCIDES TO CONTROL MICE AND RATS........USE MECHANICAL TRAPS INSTEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Bobcat visits Agoura Hills home

2012-03-29 / Pets

LOCAL WILDLIFE—Nidia Beltramo, who lives on Oak Summit Road in the Liberty Canyon neighborhood of Agoura Hills, sent in this shot of a bobcat she sighted through her kitchen window as she was preparing breakfast recently. Beltramo said she had spotted bobcats near her home before, but this is the first time one stayed long enough to pose for a clear photo. Perhaps he was smelling the bacon sizzling inside.
