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

If you check out what most Puma Advocacy Groups have to say about the management of Pumas in Utah, you will find that the state has had one of the most hostile killing policies in the lower 48.............330 Pumas were killed by hunters(most treed by hunting dogs and then shot at point blank range ).............Additionally galling is that the Utah Game Commission has no real idea of how many Cats exist in the state.........Like British Columbia's misguided Wolf killing paradigm to save Caribou, Utah wants to kill Pumas to save Bighorn sheep and Mule Deer..................Of course, our human manipulation of the environment that has made it easier for Pumas to kill these ungulates is never mentioned when formulating this genocidal plan..............We human animals cite the old and new testaments(by the way, written by men, not a diety) as text allowing us to "ride dominion over all of natures creations".................Wow, talk about us being led by Blind faith and not being good critical thinkers and going about our merry way fouling our nests...................Utah is not the only wrong doer.................All of us would be found guilty of transgressions against wildlife if in fact there was in fact a higher power giving out "traffic tickets"
