Greg Davidson works with Chevy while talking to students in the advanced-placement environmental science class at The Lowell Whiteman School on Tuesday morning. Davidson's business, Find It Detection Dogs, uses dogs to help track animal populations, including mountain lions. He has incorporated detection dogs for finding prey remains at mountain lion kill sites and helped determine prey selection and predation rates in the area. Davidson also designed a study using detection dogs for finding mountain lion scat and used this information to estimate densities of mountain lions in northeast Oregon.
