These images, courtesy of Hutto's book 'Touching The Wild: Living with the Mule Deer of Deadman Gulch," tell the seven-year story of Hutto's introduction into the wild mule deer herd, his unprecedented access into the minds and social practices of these highly-intelligent animals - and ultimately heart-felt, familial connections with the deer as individuals.

Trace the extraordinary evolutionary journey of the coywolf, a mysterious and distinctly modern creature, in this video excerpt.
Like the coywolf, its ancestor the original coyote has moved into cities like Chicago. Biologist Stan Gehrt and his team from Ohio State have been tracking radio-collared coyotes from its downtown core to the suburbs for over 12 years. They’ve learned that coyotes go to great lengths to keep their dens secret, to protect their young; that they have evolved to be larger than their ancestors; and some are living up to four times longer than coyotes in rural areas.
