#' Bison Dataset
#' 
#' Bison data collected in Prince Albert National Park, Saskatchewan, Canada 
#' (Craiu et al. 2011).
#' 
#' This data set was collected in order to study habitat selection by groups
#' of free-ranging bison. For each observed group, two individuals (dyad) equipped with GPS 
#' radio-collars were followed simultaneously. A cluster is defined here as a pair of bison. 
#' This data set contains 20 clusters. The number of strata per cluster varies
#' between 13 and 345 for a total of 1410 strata. A stratum is composed of two visited GPS
#' locations (one for each individual) gathered at the same time, together with 10 
#' random locations (five drawn within 700 m of each of the two focal bison). Therefore,
#' there are 12 observations per stratum, with 2 cases (Y=1) and 10 controls (Y=0).
#' However, due to problems in the data collection, 17 of the 1410 strata have only 6 
#' observations (1 case and 5 controls).
