Joshua Rapp LearnMar 17 2017 3:00 AM The scenes start out innocently enough often with a springtime stroll through Alaska’s Nelchina River Basin But without warning things turn grim: tableaus of blood and gore usually with an unlucky caribou calf at the center Such is the video footage collected by scientists over 3 years from cameras strapped around bears’ necks offering the first “bear’s eye view” of life in this bucolic but harsh reserve One of the team’s main findings: These bears kill a lot more than we think they do A whole lot more “It was really exciting because it’s the kind of thing you know occurs” says Christopher Brockman a wildlife biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADFG) in Palmer and lead author of the study Figuring out the “kill rate” of large carnivores is notoriously difficult says study author Bruce Dale a wildlife science coordinator at ADFG in Palmer It’s hard tracking them for long periods over large distances and it’s also easy to miss a kill A brown bear might spend a couple days eating an adult moose compared with just 40 minutes for a caribou calf So preferred tracking methods—like twice-daily aerial observations—can’t capture the full scope of bears’ hunting and feeding habits They also can’t capture individual variation in kill rates resulting in wildly different estimates for entire populations To come up with a more accurate estimate Brockman and his colleagues decided to try something new: outfitting the bears with camera collars and GPS trackers Similar to security cameras the collars filmed 10-second clips every 5 to 15 minutes for more than a month from mid-May to late June “We were focusing on the period of time when the [moose and caribou] calves are most vulnerable to predation” Brockman says He and his team collared 17 bears in total from 2011–13 Just seven collars provided the researchers with decent data—the others either fell off didn’t work properly or were chewed off their mothers by meddlesome bear cubs But the ones that did work gave the team more than 100 hours of footage—36376 clips in total From those the scientists reconstructed the bears’ days Most of their time was spent resting or traveling (605% and 213% respectively) and just 63% was spent feeding There were even a few instances of bear mating caught on camera Brockman says The behavior of an average brown bear Although researchers found that bears ate a lot more caribou and moose calves than was previously believed a bear’s life is generally not particularly strenuous Researchers tracking brown bears in Alaska’s Nelchina River Basin by GPS and collar cameras found that the animals only spent 62% of their time feeding on average—most of their time is spent resting G Grullón/Science By carefully analyzing the most gruesome footage the researchers were also able to identify the bears’ prey More than half of their meals came from moose or caribou calves whereas vegetation made up nearly 20% and adult moose made up just over 12% they report this month in the Wildlife Society Bulletin But there were also some unusual items on the menu: snowshoe hares swans and even other brown bears In one case a 10-year-old male killed—and ate—a 6-year-old female bear Overall the bears killed an average of 344 moose and caribou calves over 45 days That’s far higher than average kill rates from previous studies using other methods including aerial observation Compared with one 1988 study in which scientists counted an average of 54 moose calf kills from the air in a different part of Alaska the new study found an average of 133 moose calf kills The new study also found wide variation in the number of calves killed by any one bear with one killing 44 calves in 25 days and another killing just seven in 27 days That matters because kill rates are often used to manage wildlife living in protected areas For example if too many calves are being killed by bears then removing a few of the predators could have a big impact on allowing the moose and caribou population to increase Alternatively Brockman says if the management goal is to increase bear numbers in an area it may be important to pay attention to whether there are enough calves around in the spring to support more of the predators Still the study has its weaknesses The low numbers make it hard to draw any firm conclusions about predation rates says Martin Leclerc a PhD student at the Université de Sherbrooke in Canada who has studied how female brown bears use human settlements to shield their cubs He also points out that the bears chosen in the first year of the study were known calf killers and could thus represent a bias in the overall numbers But the use of camera collars could greatly improve knowledge about population dynamics in the future Leclerc says “The technological development will really help biologists and ecologists to have a more precise understanding of predator-prey relationships”Written by
