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

Accurate and confirmed information has come in from the Wisconisn Dept. of Natural Resources regarding the supposed 165 pound Wolf that was killed during Wisconsin's inaugral Wolf hunting season-----THE 165 POUNDS WAS FICTIONAL AND A "RED RIDINGHOOD" RUMOR----95 pounds was this wolf,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,with the largest wolf recorded to date in Wisconsin being 108 pounds-----similar to other Eastern Wolf sizings coming out of Algonqun National Park in Canada and other locales in Eastern North America----The largest Wolves in North America(the gray wolf) usually top off in the 120-130 pound range in the western and northern sectors of North America

A hoax regarding the supposed 165 pound Eastern Wolf taken in Wisconsin near Shawano City on November 17, 2012.........................It was 95 pounds per the Dept. of Ntl Resources----note that of the 500 wolf captures that the DNR has beeen involved in, the largest wolf that they have recorded topped out at 108 pounds------THERE ARE NO FRANKENSTEIN 165 POUNDERS WANDERING THE WISCONSIN WOODLANDS!

Funny, they all look particularly dumb.

The wolves look ok though.
