    We collared 88 cow and calf elk in the Silver Valley, North Fork Coeur d'Alene River, and St. Joe River drainages in late January.  These animals were fitted with GPS collars that will collect 2 locations per day and will send us an alert if the animal dies.  We are interested in the animals' overall survival, selected habitat and their cause of death.  To date, 6 animals (1 cow, 5 calves) have died (1 wolf kill and 5 lion kills).
