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

Brooks Fahy and U.S. Representative De Fazio have been working to de-fund the Predator killing segment of Wildlife Services for two decades........Brooks sent me two articles from 1998 showing how close we came at the end of the 20th Century to stopping the wasteful and wrong practice of Federal funding for shooting, trapping and poisoning Carnivores that roam our landscape

Hi Rick,

Thanks for posting the Campbell article, I thought you'd find the attached articles of interest. I've been working with Peter DeFazio on the Wildlife Services issue for two decades now, we actually pulled it off for a few hours in 1998. I hope we can gut this agency in my life time.
