Abstract

The data were collected from camera trap recordings of animals on a remote trail in northern British Columbia, Canada, from 2017-2020. The data were used for an assessment of the general fauna composition of the area; and also for assessing movement patterns of moose - especially those with obvious leg injuries. The data set includes 4562 observations - that is, instances of an animal recorded on a given video. For further description see the paper "Performance of Wild Animals with “Broken” Traits: Movement Patterns in Nature of Moose That Have Leg Injuries" published in Ecology and Evolution.

Methods

Camera traps were set to record videos of animals on a remote trail. The videos were screened and the data were recorded manually. For further description see the paper "Performance of Wild Animals with “Broken” Traits: Movement Patterns in Nature of Moose That Have Leg Injuries" published in Ecology and Evolution.
