During a winter morning on Jan. 23, 2015,  graduate student Marcus Mueller relocates a still-sedated fox to a more sheltered area near the Lakeshore Nature Preserve at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as part of a research effort to study the behavior of growing fox and coyote populations in the city of Madison. The research, called the UW Urban Canid Project and led by David Drake, associate professor of forest and wildlife ecology, involves setting fox and coyote restraints, checking the traps twice a day, recording the animalsÕ medical information and attaching radio collars to allow future monitoring.
