Bobcat Attacks Family at Mount Graham Campsite

Jul 30, 2019

Wildlife officials are searching for a bobcat after it bit five people, including a 4-year-old girl, at a southern Arizona campground.

Twenty mule deer near Flagstaff have been outfitted with collars to study their movement.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department captured and collared the deer last month around the San Francisco Peaks. Biologists are using data from the collars to learn more about the daily and seasonal movement of the deer.

Traffic engineers and wildlife officials say the information will help guide planning for future road projects to avoid collisions between vehicles and the animals, and to protect the deer's habitat.
