The study area was around 185 miles northeast of Yellowknife in more than 10,000 square miles of terrain around the tree line, a transition area where Arctic tundra takes over from taiga terrain.

This shot is taken at the beginning of fall in mid-September south of Mac Kay Lake from one of the helicopters that carried Jessen and his coauthor to the study areas. “At this point grizzlies are trying to pack on calories and fat.” Within a month, they would likely be in their dens.

The end result of the situation is that a few strong and well-fed owlets survive instead of many weaker birds.

"It was mad, real mad," Sager said of the deer in an interview with News 12. I just grabbed a handful of antlers and tried to keep it from killing me." Sager walked away from the encounter with a minor injury to her knee.

The deer, however, died as a result of the impact with the car.

The woman's bizarre encounter with the deer was caught on a Howell police officer's dash camera.

Howell police Patrolman Nicholas Austin was driving on Oak Glen Road around 8 p.m. 17 when he saw a deer cross the road several hundred feet in front of him, Detective Sgt.

Ecological studies suggest that siblicide allows for the greatest number of owlets to survive to match the available food supply.

Low food resources increase conflict among siblings which leads to a greater chance of siblicide.

The biscuits are a processed chow, similar to dry dog or cat food, which provides vitamins and minerals that the pandas may not receive from bamboo alone.

Here at the Zoo, the bulk of their main diet is made up of bamboo and leafeater biscuits.

But bears aren’t the only animals with a keen sense of smell for the lure. “They are very elusive but we sure do get a lot of shots of them in our camera traps,” Jessen said.
