Jan 7, 2012

A study of coyotes in Northeast Ohio is focused on how the secretive animals move and live in the Cuyahoga Valley in an effort to help parks shape their wildlife management plans. The Akron Beacon Journal reports the University of Akron, Ohio State University and the nonprofit Wild4Ever are working on the project with parks officials. Researchers are tracking 16 coyotes that are wearing $4,000 collars with global positioning systems. The coyotes were caught and given identifying microchips and ear tags before they were released.
