This is a good friend of mine who posted this, and yes he did have written DOW permission to tag it and collar it. I told him he should charge DOW for the free research. I find it fascinating.

I’d of liked too see a video of them collaring it! But that’s pretty remarkable too have it go that far in this day and age…..

I think he just use a catch pole and had someone hold it tight while he put the collar and ear tag on it. He said it actually wasn't hard at all, because I asked him about it as well.

Some animals just seem to want to do a walk-about. I kinda wonder if this is more prevalent among tagged animals as a result of the tagging process. For instance, several years ago a nuisance black bear was radio collared in WVa and released outside of town. Came across the river and they tracked it all way to Zanesville before it was recaptured.

That's a valid point, about the tagged animals perhaps acting differently then an untagged and collared animal would do. Its almost impossible to apply a "control" in this situation to actually see if the results are normal or only because of the situation. I will say that the coyote that he tagged was a male, and im guessing the bear you are referring to was a young male as well. These young male carnivores have been documented to travel extremely far distances in order to stake their claim to new territory. Also natures way to reduce inbreeding.

Yep it would be hard to do a control. Obviously we wouldn't have some animals in spots we have them today if it weren't for some long range dispersal animals.
