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

Kudos to BOSTON MAGAZINE FOR making cool, calm and collected statements on how to coexist wth Coyotes----- "January typically marks the beginning of mating season for coyotes, a period when they start establishing their territory and make themselves more visible to us than usual"............. "But more sightings(10,000 coyotes call Massachusetts home during the summer months) don't necessarily mean an invasion is under way"........."The good news is that we don't need to be afraid of coyotes—although we do need to think twice about letting our pets roam free during the winter months, when coyotes are hungriest"............"John Maguranis, the animal-control officer in Belmont Mass, recommends approaching Coyotes quickly, maintaining eye contact, and affecting a threatening posture"............ "In other words, wave your arms, shout, and carry on like a madman"
