UW Study: Wolves, Cougars Ambush Smaller Predators Attracted by Scraps
From The Daily Chronicle in Lewis County, Washington:
Wolves, cougars and other large predators are killing smaller carnivores, potentially controlling notoriously fecund species like coyotes.
Those were some of the findings of a University of Washington study published earlier this month in the journal Ecology Letters. The study synthesized data from 256 other studies looking at predation between carnivores, scavenging and resource availability.
