    MOBI Dan Flores æ Coyote America eBook ´ æ coyote epub, america epub, Coyote America KindleI have to give this book five stars for the impact it had on my understanding of the human species' drive to destroy what it doesn't understand or appreciate The book functions as both an ode to the intelligence and beauty of the coyote but also as a mournful dirge to America's deeply dysfunctional relationship to nature It's unbelievable that the country still kills 500000 coyotes a year despite the awareness that such wholesale slaughter causes coyote families to produce larger and larger litters That is only the current body count in a history that easily wins them the title of most persecuted large mammal in American history One of the reasons I picked up this book is the

    MOBI Dan Flores æ Coyote America eBook ´ æ coyote epub, america epub, Coyote America KindleDan Flores writes in Coyote America I have borne witness to certain truth about coyotes as neighbors you do not see them as much as hear them I live in an area where there is a large coyote population I hardly ever see a coyote but I hear them all the time Dan Flores has written a richly detailed look at the America conservation movement and its attitude toward the coyote for the last century and half A native of North America the coyote has a rich history which today continues to grow The coyote is a fascinating creature it's ability to adapt and survive has spanned 10000 years and made it a true American icon When the first White people arrived in America they did not know what to make of this prairie wolf but they did sense a threat I had no idea that the government has waged a century old battle for the eradication of the coyote Early on the National Park S

    MOBI Dan Flores æ Coyote America eBook ´ æ coyote epub, america epub, Coyote America KindleThis is an interesting book on the history of the coyote – an animal uniue to North America although related to the African jackalThe coyote when the first Europeans arrived was found only in the South West of North America Now it has spread to all parts of the continent – in spite of concerted efforts to exterminate it From shooting to traps to using poisons such as strychnine all with the support government support; the coyote has thrived in the North American landscape and now inhabits citiesIt was thought for over one hundred years that the coyote was a malicious predator similar in reputation to a rattlesnake and thousands upon thousands were killed off All to no avail – in fact as the author explains unlike the wolf the coyote prevailed It is highly adaptable

    MOBI Dan Flores æ Coyote America eBook ´ æ coyote epub, america epub, Coyote America KindleNumerous authors have already delved into the cultural and scientific research on the coyote a uniuely American animal Flores lists these works in his extensive bibliography and mentions some of them in the text of his book In COYOTE AMERICA he documents a long history of destructive and inhumane government policies driven by that familiar triumvirate fear greed and hubris The “conuest of the west” has a familiar ring Paired alongside it was the “war on predators” The metaphors roll off the tongue so thoughtlessly It's disheartening to realize that only 125 years after Lewis and Clark saw their first wolves those same animals had been driven to near extinction Mission accomplished? Hardly The government next turned its attention to coyotes Flores' book is particularly timely; his historical account is relevant to anyone attentive to the dynamic of government policy making

    MOBI Dan Flores æ Coyote America eBook ´ æ coyote epub, america epub, Coyote America KindleNot a super fast read but short enough that I wanted a bit I mean it had lots of history biology philosophy but it could have used just a couple Coyote Trickster tales It did have plenty of statements that make me feel outraged at how much taxpayer money has been spent murdering coyotes in a futile attempt to eradicate them when the truth is that their population would stabilize at a reasonable level if they didn't have to over breed and over migrate to try to find a safe place in which to nurture their familiesFor a mind conflicted about 'sin' and 'virtue'; self interest versus cooperation; games of love and status; new experiences to jolt neuro chemistry and emotional states what better for the long ago Americans who selected a part human part coyote as a suitab
