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

Menomonie, Wisc. (November 26, 2013) Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin(WODCW) wants to remind the citizens of WI, that starting December 2, 2013, the State of Wisconsin will allow the commencement of the cruel and inhumane practice of "wolf hounding".

Wisconsin is the only state in the nation that allows the stalking of packs of GPS tagged dogs to run down wolves and kill them.  In a poll taken (here), by the Human Society of Untied States, in June of 2013, 85% of people in WI did not want hounding to take place.

"We want Wisconsinites to know what will happen when packs of dogs are unleashed on wolves", said Rachel Tilseth, founder of WODCW.  "It is not a fair fight. The "hounders" are allowed to place homemade collars on their dogs, which are fitted with nails and shards of steel, which will lacerate the mouths of the wolves, once wolves try to fight back. There is no way for the wolf to defend themselves, before the hounds' owners catch up to the pack tearing the wolf apart".

WODCW is working with Senator Fred Risser to remove the dogs from the wolf hunt. However, in a move to obstruct the democratic process, Senator Neil Kedzie, has stalled in committee, Senator Fred Risser's Senate Bill #93, that calls for the removal of dogs from the wolf hunt, despite volumes of emails and calls to the Senator Kedzie's office.  

Members of the press are encouraged to join WODCW, in the woods, to expose this form of cruelty, in hopes to educate Wisconsinites on this archaic method of killing.  "There has never been a more important time for the people of WI to show they are not going to give in to a small group of people that want to torture animals for fun under the guise of "sport".

Wisconsinites' are urged to support Senator Fred Risser's SB#93 that calls for the removal of dogs from the wolf hunt.  Tilseth stated, "Is this what WI citizens want to be known for? We ask you all to call and email you opposition to wolf hounding and end this bloodletting, before it begins in December".
