Important for better understanding predator-prey relations in Michigan is finding predator cluster sites of Bear, Bobcat, Coyote, and Wolf to analyze what predator species are feeding on what prey species, how often and in what way. 
“Find It Detection Dogs” like Moose and Chevy have increased how many fawn predation bones The Global Wildlife Conservation Center has found at predator cluster sites, providing more accurate data for this study.
