| No Comments | No TrackBacks

This afternoon on "Outside" it is a rebroadcast of the Jan. 30 show with wildlife biologist Bob Bluett talking the resurgence of river otters and bobcats in Illinois.

River otters were reintroduced, beginning in 1994, and have made a stunning comeback in Illinois, making it into every watershed in the state including the Chicago River.

Bobcats have been rebounding in populations on their own.

Loved the theory why they appeared to comeback so strong in the Shawnee National Forest, squirrels might be part of the reason.

"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM (91.1) in Kankakee. Rebroadcasts of the show are at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays.

Laurel Soper, the web tech and digital media person for KCC, has put together the podcast system here.
