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

ABERDEEN, South Dakota — South Dakota
 wildlife officials have set
the hunting season for mountain lions.
The Aberdeen American News reports
 that the state Game, Fish and
 Parks Commission voted unanimously
 open the mountain lion season
 from Dec. 26 to March 31, 2014.
The 2014 season would allow for a
 statewide harvest limit of 75
mountain lions or 50 females

. If the limit is not met by the end
 of the season, it could be
 extended by special resolution.

The number of mountain lions allowed
 to be harvested in 2013 was
 100, or 70 female cats.
South Dakota hunters last year killed
 61 mountain lions, including
 35 female cats. Officials say 4,351
 mountain lion licenses were
 issued last season
