It's official, the Inuit have refused to allow any more animal collaring, and our application to collar has been denied. Again we were very lucky to be given approval to collar last year.
Thus we will concentrate on checking out > 50 probable muskox-kill locations based on 2 or more of Brutus's consecutive locations being in the same place. We also hope to do a helicopter count of muskoxen and the few Peary caribou in the area.
Much of the information we obtain will be very useful to help explain Brutus' pack movements and behavior last year. We will keep folks posted with new entries as we learn more.
