      FORT COLLINS --- GPS tracking data collected from radio collars on
      mountain lions, lynx, wolves and other wild mammals are challenging
      scientific understanding of the animals' range and habitat.

      Until about five years ago, the use of GPS technology was limited.

      Now, Colorado Division of Wildlife and other Western biologists are
      tracking more animals using satellites and computers and seeing them
      wander farther, more frequently and far beyond the bounds of what is
      believed to be their normal habitat.....
