Alaskan Study on Grizzly Bears
« on: April 04, 2017, 01:01:13 PM »
I thought this was pretty interesting.

To come up with a more accurate estimate, Brockman and his colleagues decided to try something new: outfitting the bears with camera collars and GPS trackers. Similar to security cameras, the collars filmed 10-second clips every 5 to 15 minutes for more than a month, from mid-May to late June. “We were focusing on the period of time when the [moose and caribou] calves are most vulnerable to predation,” Brockman says. He and his team collared 17 bears in total from 2011–13.

Maybe they could combine a shock collar in there then when they chase caribou or moose they could shock them. Surprised PETA hasn't filed a lawsuit saying it was against the grizzly bears rights!!

 I can't seem to find it but there was a collared bear study done around Yellowstone and they figured out that the grizzlies there were a heck of a lot closer to hunters in the woods than they had determined before. The studies seemed to show the grizzlies shadowing them at times.
