Brookfield Zoo, Brookfield, IL

This workshop is intended for wildlife and natural resource managers, animal control professionals, environmental educators, volunteer land stewards, and others who may either respond to periodic reports of large carnivores in their communities or interact with the public on this topic. Local and national experts will share information and lead discussions on the biology and ecology of black bears, cougars, and wolves, as well as best practices in education, outreach, and other issues associated with the presence of these large carnivores in an urban landscape. This workshop is also the first step in developing a coordinated, regional strategy to living with these species.

If you fit the above criteria, please visit the following link for more details and how to register. Dr. Gehrt will be offering a presentation during this workshop.

Habitat of Coyote 748

An ultimate, urban animal, Coyote 748 was fitted with a GPS-style tracking collar in the Bronzeville area of Chicago on February 24, 2014. At his capture, it was obvious he was of breeding age and once a few radio-locations were collected, we realized we had collared a resident coyote with an established territory. He seemed to go about his daily routine in a low-profile fashion, taking to the busy streets nightly without fail. In April, his normal quiet behavior turned aggressive towards dogs as people walked their pets through a specific area.
