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

Subject: Good News! SB 1221 SB 1480 Pass Senate..... now go to Brown for his sig!

Hello Friends of Project Coyote,

Good news! Yesterday the Senate voted in support of SB 1221 (bill to ban the use of hounds to hunt bear and bobcat) on a 22-13 concurrence vote. And even more good news: the Senate also passed SB 1480 (bill to restrict cruel wildlife trapping and killing methods and better regulate wildlife control operators).

If Govenor Brown signs the bills, hounds no longer will be treeing black bears

THANK YOU FOR MAKING YOUR VOICES HEARD! We would not have come this far without so many Californians speaking out in support of these bills.

But it's not over! We still need Governor Jerry Brown to sign both bills before they become law. Please take a moment to contact Brown and urge his support for both


To email go to the Governor's site:
( Select "contact" and then scroll through "please choose your subject" pull down to find SB 1221 and SB 1480. You must submit two separate forms for both bills. You can also call/fax Brown:
Phone: (916) 445-2841
(916) 558-3160
For more info. about these bills and talking points see our action alert here:
