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

Dr Charles Kay - alleged wolf expert who has communicated with this blog previously is not highly regarded by the majority of wildlife biologists.....It is important not to hide in the sand from his "hail mary" negative pronouncements about Wolves.............It is critical for us to to figure out how to discredit his anti-wolf positions responsibly and with peer reviewed science so that we can get a sane wolf management policy in place that does more than just allow an arbitrary minimum number of lobos to occupy viable wolf habitat across the Americas

"In the final analysis, wolf recovery has nothing to do with wolves. Instead, ,it is all about the elimination of livestock grazing/ranching and the banning of hunting. Just look at the stated agendas of the groups that sued to keep wolves under federal protection."

"There are two AND ONLY TWO solutions to livestock depredations by wolves. Get rid of the livestock or get rid of the wolves. Everything else is just smoke and mirrors. Ranchers need to understand that ALL non-lethal methods eventually fail and are not a permanent solution."--------Dr. Charles E. Kay!
