WANTED! Beaver carcasses for wildlife monitoring
« on: February 06, 2019, 10:03:33 AM »
Hello, my name is Scott
I work for a non-profit researching Cascade red foxes and wolverines in the South Cascades.  We are looking for bait for our camera stations and have a WDFW scientific collection permit to salvage roadkill, beavers etc. 
Camera stations consist of bait (skinned beaver or roadkill deer/elk quarters/head), a hair snag device for DNA sampling, and an adjacent trail camera. 
I'm wondering if folks are willing to donate carcasses of beavers trapped this winter.  We are located in Yakima/Naches but are willing to travel to collect carcasses.   
Please let me know if you are interested, thanks!
Scott

Great!  Thank you, would you mind shooting me an email with your contact info?  I'll actually be coming through Ellensburg on Friday.

Thats the right question.  I find it curious that he didnt say, like maybe he doesnt want us to know.  Maybe a group that is no friend of hunters.

Scott,

I was wondering when you'd show up on forums.

I'm not trapping beaver this winter but will next December when I am back on break and will definitely hit you guys up to see if you'd want the carcasses.

-Ben.

For all of you wondering, here's a news story from last winter about some of the work they do. A good organization and are the true definition of animals at what they do to find these critters in the back country.

Hey thanks Ben,
Good to hear from you, I hope you are well.  I heard you are working on your Idaho trapping license?
Cheers,

Jake that's a good question since research has been done down in Oregon on the Cascade Red Fox.

Do you see how the Wildlife Department lies to us about animals.  I told them about 12 years ago that I ran across some wolverine track in the snow behind Snoqualmie Pass while elk hunting.  They told me I was wrong.  And wasn't it that two wolverines were killed by cars last year over around the town of Snoqualmie / I-90 area?  Maybe we have more wolverine than one would think in Washington.  Oh and than there is this University of Washington Researcher that just showed us that we have over 200 wolves in Washington but the department say we have around maybe 122.

Maybe we should help this guy out if he is going to show that the wildlife department don't know what they are talking about or are a bunch of Liars.
Attach is a wolverine track a friend of mine took last winter cross country skiing behind Snoqualmie Pass / Cabin Creek area.

Hello Jake and John,

There has been very little research conducted on the Cascade red fox despite how unique and rare it is.  Cascade red foxes are endemic to WA state and are the only native red fox in WA, residing year round at higher elevations in the Cascades.  Red foxes found in the lowlands in WA are non-native, descending from European or eastern US foxes introduced for hunting or escaped from fur farms in the west. 
Our project is studying Cascade red fox current distribution, population abundance, and reproductive ecology using remote camera stations and DNA sampling for genetic analysis. 

John, wolverine would definitely be my (strong!) guess for the maker of that track, nice photo!   

Below are photos of fresh wolverine tracks we came across on the Naches ranger district recently.

Hi Scott,
Yep that picture I posted I thought was a wolverine but to make sure I text three guys up in Alaska to see what they thought it was
All three said it was a wolverine.
Kind of nice knowing there around here.

I saw a black fox with a white tipped tail in the ski area at crystal. Is that one of the native foxes?
