Nov. 3, 2015

Associate Professor Stan Gehrt's research on the diets of coyotes in the Cape Breton area involved in killing Canadian folk singer, Taylor Mitchell in 2009, is the focus of a recent article for The Wildlife Society.  At the 22nd Annual Wildlife Society Conference held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Gehrt shared findings from a study he and other researchers conducted to examine the diets of coyotes in the area to see if there is a relationship between the use of human food and coyote-human conflict.  Learn more about what they found here.
