First we had web cams. All sorts of crazies hooked up cameras to their computers to allow the world watch their completely boring life unfold. They were a big hit in some college dormitories.
Next, came the traffic cam, and all the citations that followed for various violations of motor vehicle laws.
Now, Deercam is here!
“Deercam,” a camera mounted on the heads of deer, will provide up-close and personal footage of the mammals feeding, breeding, grooming, fighting and generally messing around.
Despite the size of the equipment, Millspaugh stated the deer acted normally, and that he thinks the camera and battery equipment did not affect the deer behavior.
If we need a camera to study a deer’s normal behavior, how do we know the camera size didn’t affect that normal behavior?
