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

Always good to see a mom and dad teaching their kids to respect the life of the creatures that we share the planet with................The video within the article below(click on link to view) shows just how tolerant and respectful we all can be of carnivores in our midst...................In this case, a Miami-Dade County Florida family sharing their property with a Gray fox family of 7 this Spring and Summer................Mom and Dad Fox bring their 5 pups into the human family's backyard everyday to play and rest.................The human family rations the time they let their dog out in the back,and are careful and respectful when they themselves go out to the yard so as to not scare the pups and put mom and dad Fox in a defensive posture..................And as the Lady of the house explains to the tv reporter------- “They still are wild animals, and they will react like wild animals"......... “They may think they need to protect their babies"....... "They may think you’re gonna try to harm them, so we keep our distance" ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,A tip of the hat to this Florida family for its humanity!
