Alberta wildlife caught on camera
Interesting story from the CBC. The Miistakis Institute for the Rockies has been strapping infrared cameras to trees for the past three summers to track human and animal activity in the backcountry. Photos show the impact of hikers and other humans on animals. The animals often use hiking trails during the week, but leave before the weekend rush.
"They go to higher elevations or away from the human trails, and on Monday morning they're right back on those human trails again. And in a lot of cases, they'll prefer to travel on those human trails. So most of our grizzly bear shots, for example, are on human trails."
