Coyote Research

University School has partnered with the Cleveland Metroparks and Ohio State University to conduct research on coyotes in Northeast Ohio. Biology teacher Sara Laux was present for the collaring of a sub-adult male weighing 33lbs, which was captured at North Chagrin Reservation. The coyote was taken to the zoo, fitted with GPS collar and then released back to North Chagrin.  The same team involved with this coyote are working at US to trap and collar a coyote on campus.  They have yet to successfully trap a coyote on campus but are still trying. The trapper gave a demonstration to science students about how the traps are being set on the Hunting Valley campus. Additionally, the students are able to study the coyotes through infrared motion activated cameras that are scattered throughout the woods. It is critical for visitors to the Hunting Valley campus with dogs to keep them leashed at all times.
