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

Life is all about second chances. No one is perfect and no one is immune to tragedy, but it's how we respond to these incidents and what we do with our second chances that determine our strength. Who could forget the powerful story of this pit bull who fought through abuse and neglect for a chance at a better life? Or these cows who literally leaped for joy when they got the chance to escape the factory farming system and enjoy the outdoors? 
A recent story of a coyote's miraculous second chance has been circling the Internet for a few days, and people all over the world have had their hearts touched by this remarkable story. It all started when a beautiful female coyote was found injured in a dried riverbed. A service group called Animal Rescue Team was called in to save its life and bring it to a shelter, but when the rescuers went to feed her the next morning, they discovered something incredible. 
Keep reading to learn about the miraculous recovery and the inspiring toughness of this amazing animal. 

Rescuers found this tough female coyote in a riverbed after it had survived an accidental poisoning, a 30-foot fall off a cliff, and a gunshot to the head.

The injuries left her blind, but she wasn't about to give up her fight for life. After receiving CPR, the coyote was brought back to a shelter for recover

The next morning, the rescuers discovered four infant coyotes in her cage. Miraculously, they all survived the traumatic incident.

Everyone at the shelter was amazed at the strength shown by the four pups and their brave mother.

The babies will be raised in the shelter until they are old enough to be released back in the wild, and rescuers are confident that the mother can go back to living a normal life despite her blindness
