Hook and Fur: How do wolves affect behavior of deer and elk?

…Last January, department (WDFW) research scientists and field biologists began capturing, deer, elk and cougars and fitting them with radio-collars to monitor their movements. The goal is to keep 65 white-tailed deer, 50 elk and 10 cougars collared in one study area that includes areas of Ferry, Stevens and Pend Orville countries. The researchers also plan to collar 100 mule deer and 10 cougars in Okanogan Country. They have already radio-collared some wolves there.
