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

Instead of Science winning the argument about the role carnivores play in optimizing our natural world, biased non-factual messaging by the anti-wolf organizations continually try to shape the opinions of many uninformed Americans .................This time it is in the form of billboarding in and around Yellowstone Park in an attempt to defame PREDATOR DEFENSE'S billboarding that seeks to cause people to wake up to the fact that Wolves are not going to come and eat "LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD"........We all have to be "up on our toes" and bringing our "A-Game" if we intend to restore the spirit of the 1970's environmental awakening that brought about the bi-partisan Wilderness and Endangered Species Acts.......................We have to expose the "anti-carnivores" for what they really are--- frauds, charlatans and b.s. artists

Anti-Wolf Fanatics Scramble to Counter Pro-Wolf Message

Posted on May 30, 2013
First, here's a message from
Introducing Our Wolf Billboards
This is an image of one of the five billboards we're having installed on highways approaching the entrances to Yellowstone National Park, starting in June. They will greet tourists visiting the park via Montana, Wyoming and Idaho and are designed to get them to wake up to the desperate plight of wolves in America.
We really need your help to sustain this billboard campaign throughout the summer and to expand it to even more locations. PLEASE DONATE TODAY!
Timing is critical. We've already lost 1,700 gray wolves to hunters and trappers in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Minnesota, and Wisconsin since wolves were removed from federal endangered species protection in 2011 and management was handed over to individual states. This slaughter has been largely unpublicized and has therefore been unnoticed by the greater public. The situation is dire, as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service intends to remove protections for wolves across nearly the entire country. This would be disastrous for gray wolf recovery
No sooner did Predator Defense erect their billboards for the wolves than did the bogus pseudo "conservation"/anti-wolf group "Big Game Forever" begin fundraising for a Yellowstone area billboard campaign of their own. Theirs would of course carry their standard anti-wolf rhetoric, while feigning concern for trophy target species like moose and elk. Here's part of an intercepted "BGF" email alert meant to tug at the heart strings of self-serving trophy hunters across the west:
Once again, America's moose, elk and other wildlife need your help. There is a major highway billboard campaign aimed at stopping wolf management in the Northern Rockies. Big Game Forever needs your help to educate the public and the 3.4 million annual visitors to Yellowstone National Park of the importance of restoring balance through responsible wolf, moose and elk management.
Here is what is happening. Over Memorial Day weekend, a new series of billboards popped up on several major highways leading to Yellowstone Park. It appears that these billboards are aimed at influencing national sentiment against responsible wolf management.
Big Game Forever has been working over the past several weeks to respond to this misplaced advertising attack.
We have reserved a number of billboards around Idaho and Montana to educate the public about the very real moose crisis emerging in wolf states of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and Minnesota. We are also working with a coalition of conservation-minded sportsmen to place billboards in Cody Wyoming.
Please go to and click on the "Donate" button. A number of generous private donors have already stepped up to match your donation. Your $25 dollar donation becomes $50. Your $100 donation becomes $200. Please go to and click on the "Donate" button.  100% of the donations received during this campaign will go to this important educational campaign.  Your generous donation makes all the difference.
Keep in mind that whenever "Big Game Forever" mentions "conservation" or "responsible wolf management" they are really talking about wolf eradication–by any means possible. Donations to that group come from wealthy trophy hunters.
Now more than ever pro-wolf groups like need your donations to spread the word for wolves, through billboard campaigns and other selfless efforts. Already, pro-wolf proponents have stepped up with the offer to match donations made in support of their support. Don't let the pseudo conservationists dupe the public with their "it's all here for us" attitude.
