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

Truly fine looking female Eastern Coyote found it's way into Manhattan Sunday morning and was corralled by Police, captured and then released into the woodlands of Ny's most northern Borough, The Bronx,,,,,,,,,,,where woodland exists and the Coyote can attempt to live on.................Even though Manhattan is an island, the Coyote once again showing that there is no boundary too big or too small to keep them from expanding their turf..............."If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere,,,,NY, NY, NY"---Frank Sinatra

Coyote caught in Manhattan

Cops in the badlands of Stuyvesant Town corralled this coyote early Sunday.
The seemingly healthy canid was first spotted sprinting past a guard shack at ConEd’s East 14th Street plant a little after 7 a.m., touching off a wild half-hour-long
ConEd security guards called cops, and when officers showed up, the coyote hightailed it into Stuy Town.
Police shot it with a tranquilizer dart and then snared it with a catch pole. It was put into an over-sized dog crate and safely hauled away.
Officers were equally amused and cautious of the animal – laughing and taking cell phone pictures of the tranquilized beast, but then nervously
jumping back if it made the slightest move forward.
