Ontario Provincial Police are trying to solve a grisly mystery in Norfolk County.
They were recently called by a resident who reported seeing several dead animals in a heavily wooded area on a farm.
Officers arrived at the scene and found the decomposed remains of about 20 coyotes.
Police have not yet said how the animals died or how long they've been there.
A Calgary startup business is partnering with researchers at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology to develop technology that will assist ranchers with tracking livestock.
Ag-Con Aerial Corporation was created by a business partnership that included entrepreneur Rob Gunn, a drone enthusiast who wanted to turn his hobby of filming from above into a business.
The team created electronic tags that would be fitted to the cattle and detected from a distance of up to 12 metres, and the detector would be fastened to a drone.
It allows ranchers to identify potential health concerns in an animal.
The Wisconsin legislature has agreed to make cheese the official dairy product of the state, which produces more 3 billion pounds of cheese per year.
The state's official animal is the badger, also the mascot of the University of Wisconsin.
But its official domestic animal is the dairy cow, and milk is the official state beverage.
The idea to give cheese its right place in state designations came from a fourth grade class in Mineral Point, a city in southwest Wisconsin that's home to one of the state's nearly 150 cheese plants.
