January 29, 2017 entry:
These animals are environmentally sensitive. They would most certainly be looking out for their own interests.
Concern with wildfires during dry, hot seasons. This was demonstrated at Goosely Lake, back in June 2015. It was really dry out. I did put fireweed on the fire to create smoke. The flies and mosquitoes were nasty.
They might be moving herds of prey species to safer grounds, and isolating herds to avoid the spread of sickness and disease. I believe they are capable of separating an animal, keeping it confined within a certain area, until ready to kill it.
2015, Doug observed a hairy biped on a bluff, overlooking a herd of elk. During time of wildfire near Whitesail Lake. (PGC Project)
2016 spring - Bull elk appeared to have been herded many kms towards Eden Project. (PGC Project) July 15th we were camped for one night on Morice Mountain. I heard one elk in the woods between us and Morice FSR down below. (Eden Project.)
2016 spring - Followed large amount of moose and elk tracks from Tahtsa FSR up to Duel Lakes area. Tracks continued on. (Nadina Project,)
