The Beast is Back!

IMG_0323Since our wildlife camera trapping program began in 2012 the Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission has been following a female white-tailed deer affectionately referred to as Beast. She was tagged and collared by DEC wildlife biologist Karl Parker in 2002 and at that time was aged at 2 1/2 years. That means that when we spotted her with her herd on our camera again this December she was approaching at least 15 years old! Although her collar, the frequency of which was 666 leading to her nickname, is no longer broadcasting and her ear tags have long since fallen off, she is still going strong!
