            The Predator Paradox: Ending the War with Wolves, Bears, Cougars, and Coyotes

            The Predator Paradox: Ending the War with Wolves, Bears, Cougars, and Coyotes (Hardback)

            By Shivik, John

            An expert in wildlife management tells the stories of those who are finding new ways for humans and mammalian predators to coexist. The longest armed conflict carried out by the United States government, beginning in 1914, is our war with mammalian predators. The death toll is tr...emendous: federal agents kill ninety thousand wolves, bears, coyotes, and cougars every year. The paradox is that we need to safeguard ourselves and livestock from predators, while simultaneously preserving and protecting these key species--fundamental components of healthy ecosystems. Shivik argues that we can end the war. By shifting away from death from above and embracing nonlethal approaches to managing wildlife--practices and technologies he has helped pioneer--we can dismantle the paradox, have both people and predators on the landscape, and ensure the long-term survival of both. Blending the science of the wild with entertaining and dramatic storytelling throughout, Shivik traces the culture of good old boy wildlife managers and observes the difference two cows can make to a widow rancher. Shivik's clear-eyed pragmatism allows him appeal to both sides of the debate, while arguing for the possibility of coexistence: between ranchers and environmentalists, wildlife managers and animal-welfare activists, and humans and animals.

            This title was first published in 2000: The noble goals embodied in the Endangered Species Act are colliding with financial and social realities. Citizens increasingly face the costs of current policies, while initiatives which fail to respect liberty and property meet serious re...sistance at every turn. Despite widespread verbal support for saving species 'at any cost', when trade-offs become obvious, and values compete, support for these policies evaporates. This edited collection examines ethically and materially responsible approaches to this problem, written by leading international figures from a variety of disciplines. The result is the most comprehensive and constructive analysis of the effectiveness and viability of endangered species protection available.
