Photo: Coyote-Tracking Web Site Exposes Canine, Human Troublemakers



Wild coyotes, like the animal seen here, are being tracked and mapped in real time in Rhode Island as part of a project that uses the latest global positioning technology to study the animals' behaviors in an urban setting.

Project managers have also set up a publicly available Web site that displays the coyotes' movements in near-real time to help educate children and the concerned public.
