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

California SB 1221 bill to ban the hunting of Carnivores with Hounds and other means has just passed through Committee and is headed to the House for a vote.........Thanks to Senator Ted Lieu and Senate Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg for their proactive efforts!

California Senators seek to ban hunting Carnivores with Hounds

I just got a call from my old friend Rick Hopkins who just testified for the bill. Rick is a top predator ecologist, he also did the longest running cougar study ever done ( 13 years) in CA.
This is good in light to everything else that's happening around the country, again CA leads the way!

Hello, all--

Just off the phone with California Senator Ted Lieu's office. He sponsored SB 1221 with Senate head pro tem Darrell Steinberg to outlaw hunting predators bear, bobcats, wolves with dogs and other means in California. The bill was approved out of committee and next will go to the House. This despite the usual honking and tweeting by the California Cattlemens Association.

Please share with everyone and ask them to telephone the Senatorial offices and say thanks...and tell them we will do all we can to support anti-hunting and anti-trapping and anti-dog hunting actions. This is a step in the right direction....

Walk in Beauty on the Great Mother Earth,
