“The plains bison is not the only species that almost disappeared after Europeans
arrived on the prairies. Just as integral a member of the mixed grasslands
ecosystem was the swift fox, a nocturnal hunter no bigger than a large house
cat. Despite its speed – it can run up to 37mph in short bursts – and the fact
that its fur was not especially prized, by 1900 only a few isolated populations
remained, and by the late 1930s the swift fox had completely disappeared from
the Canadian prairies, the northern fringe of its reign. In ensuing years
the U.S. population has continued to decline, but the Canadian population
has recently begun to make a comeback.”
