Researchers study effects of oil drilling on N.D. wildlife
FARGO -- Mule deer in the Little Missouri Badlands recently were equipped with radio collars to enable biologists to track their movements and mortality.
The research is one of several studies under way in western North Dakota to determine the effects on wildlife species from unprecedented oil and gas drilling and production.
Adverse impacts come from drilling, road building, truck traffic and noise, as well as expansion of urban areas.
