    Episode 39: Red Foxes

    Episode 39: Red Foxes

    We haven't talked about red foxes since episode 17, way back in the "Two Minutes" days for this podcast. Today, we interview fox researcher Patrick Cross and discuss behaviors, genetics, the trickster foxes of legend, and much more. We dedicate this episode to Rex, our 12-year-old fox who passed away shortly after the interview was recorded.

    Episode 38: The Bears Are Up

    It's springtime, which means the bears are awake. It is also time to introduce Gary's new co-host, Eden Wondra, the Education Manager from the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary. In this episode, Gary and Eden are joined by Kylie Kembel, a Bear Management Technician for Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, to revisit a subject we discussed back in episode 3. This time, though, with our new long format, we have time to talk about bear safety, biology, "problem bears," bear encounters, and much more.

    Episode 36: How Animals End Up In Sanctuaries

    One of the most common questions we get at Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary is, "Why is that animal here?" That's often a more complicated question than you'd expect. In this episode, Gary and Courtney are joined by Laurie Wolf, Acting Education Bureau Chief for Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks to talk about rehabilitation and wildlife Sanctuaries.
