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

Touching 14 years now in Southern California, a previous 5 years in Dallas,,,,,,,,,4 in Ohio and as a "fledgling" in Northern NJ still has me very "pumped" when I see the "Garden State(New Jersey is still close to 40 % wooded and historically a USA leader in truck crops like tomatoes and corn) with it's dense human population(first or 2nd human density population of any state) somehow welcoming back carnivores like Black Bears, Bobcats and Eastern Coyotes(Coywolves as Mass. Biologist Jon Way calls them).............Take a look at the varied "looks" of Jersey Coyotes, somethimes wolf-like, sometimes "red-colored", most often a good 10 pounds heavier than Coyotes west of the MIssissippi-----Enjoy this photo-spread of New Jersey Coyotes-----Tony Soprano would say they represent the State with aplomb!


Hunterdon County is a county located in the western section of the U.S. state of New Jersey. As of the 2010 United States Census, the population was 128,349. It is part of the New York Metropolitan Area. Its county seat is Flemington. The Bureau of Economic Analysis ranked the county as having the 19th-highest per capita income of all 3,113 counties in the United States (and the third highest in New Jersey) as of 2009.

Hunterdon County was established on March 11, 1714, separating from Burlington County, at which time it included all of present day Morris, Sussex and Warren counties. The rolling hills and rich soils which produce bountiful agricultural crops drew Native American tribes and then Europeans to the area.
