Carcass Mgmt

Livestock die from a multitude of causes, and, when left in a field or pasture, they become attractants for wolves, bears, mountain lions, and other carnivores. Removing these attractants is important to preventing future conflicts with nearby livestock and ranch personnel or forest recreationists.

The solution to is to quickly find and remove carcasses, and then bury them in a composting pile secure from large carnivores. The compost pile is surrounded by an electric fence to deter scavengers from entering.

People and Carnivores works with local authorities, landowner groups, and other partners to locate potential carcass sites, obtain needed permissions, organize pickup services, and build surrounding fences.
