Meadows MUCK is a North American wildlife role-playing MUCK. Popular species include wolves, cougars, coyotes, foxes, dogs, horses, and deer. While there is a small degree of human presence, the focus is on the interactions among the animals. A few of the past groups on the MUCK have drawn inspiration from non-anthropomorphic literature such as Watership Down and the Warriors series. The MUCK was originally set in Europe, but changed in March 2007 to a North American setting.

A player is allowed to have no more than two wolf characters or two cougar characters. This includes canine hybrids, which are restricted through special applications. However, a third wolf may be allowed to players who submit a quality application and have an active non-canine alt.
A moderate amount of realism with characters is enforced, though some creative leeway is allowed. For example, unnatural colorings (e.g. blue) are not permitted, but unique patterns and variations in shades are allowed. Albino characters are also restricted by way of application.
TinySex was originally allowed in private rooms, but has since been banned as a result of several problems and complaints.
|The MUCK has a general rating of PG-13. As such, explicit sexual content is not allowed under any circumstances. While we understand that animals do breed, past issues have forced a complete ban of scenes of this nature. Please use a fade to black, or take the RP elsewhere.|
Originally, when it opened in May 2006, Meadows MUCK was set in an unspecified area of Europe. In March 2007, the head wizard stated that by setting the MUCK in Europe rather than in North America, "we sacrificed the presence of cougars. This may not seem like a lot, but I think a 'clan' of cougars could add a lot to the dynamics of the IC realm.". She proposed allowing cougar characters without changing the setting; allowing species from both North America and Europe; or changing the setting from Europe to North America. After a final poll between the two most popular options of a merge or a complete shift, the setting was changed to western North America.
