Chattaroy Teen Monitoring Deer Behavior
Riverside High School senior Erik Kemp is on a quest to learn more about Bambi’s eating habits. Kemp’s science project is turning more than just antlers, Washington wildlife officials are taking notice too.
Kemp went so far as to set up cameras on his family’s property. He put out corn and crab apples for the animals to eat and filmed their actions. Kemp found that the deer like the corn better than the crab apples, but once the baiting was over he found no lasting effect on animal behavior. Kemp is expected to present his findings this week to the Fish and Wildlife Department.
