The First Coyote Capture

We have successfully collared our first coyote! Coy 1 is a healthy adult female that lives near Decatur, Ga. She is easily recognizable by her blonde coat coloration. Coyotes can have a variety of coat colors from black to blonde. The capture went smoothly, and the image shows her wearing an eye mask to reduce stress and leg restraints to prevent injury to herself or researchers. We are excited to start receiving location data from her GPS collar. Stay tuned for updates on her movement! ~Eden
