Thank you to Carson Law for her presentation on Animal Tracks and other signs to look for as animals prepare for winter! Did you know that well-fed dogs will walk in a more meandering path, whereas animals like foxes and wolves who can't afford to waste energy while hunting for food in the wild take a more direct, straight-lined path. You can also differentiate canine tracks from feline tracks by the claw marks. Felines retract their claws and don't leave claw marks like canines.
You can catch the edited video of Carson's presentation below or on our YouTube channel.
