Range Riding - Upper Green River

 

Range riders combine knowledge of local carnivores with regenerative grazing techniques to proactively herd cattle and prevent depredations. Livestock often spread out when grazing and re-graze certain areas, making them vulnerable to predators, and potentially harming rangeland. By actively herding cattle and mimicking the instincts of wild ungulates, the herd gains safety in numbers. In time, a herd can re-learn the natural instinct to stay in groups even without constant direction from the range rider.

Fladry - Marion

 

People and Carnivores installed temporary fladry fencing around a calving pasture to deter wolves from entering. Fladry has been used for hundreds of years to deter wolves and keep them away from herds of livestock. It consists of a barrier of flags suspended from a single strand of electrified cordage and takes advantage of wolves’ innate fear of new objects in their environment.

We’ve also compiled a manual outlining the best practices for using fladry.

Scare Devices - Kalispell

 

People and Carnivores deployed a night predator deterrent, Foxlights, to discourage wolves and grizzly bears from entering a livestock pasture. Foxlights use a varying flash of colored light to create the appearance of a human using a flashlight.

Livestock Guardian Dogs - Mission Valley

Livestock guardian dogs have been used for centuries as a means of warding off predators. The dogs stay with the group of animals they protect as a full-time member of the flock or herd. People and Carnivores worked with a breeder to help a ranching family acquire livestock guardian dogs to protect their herd.

Electric Fencing - St. Ignatius

 

Corn is not a natural food source for wild grizzly bears, but more than a dozen grizzlies have learned to come down from the Mission Mountains each year to an adjacent cornfield in search of an easy and reliable source of food. People and Carnivores worked with a local dairy farmer to enclose his cornfield using an electric fence in an effort to deter bears from eating his crop. One challenge that required some ingenuity was a section of fence where pivot irrigation wheels crossed the fence's electrified wires. In the first year of the project, we built several electrified "unwelcome mats" to deter bears in these vulnerable fence areas. In year two, P&C built custom electric pivot irrigation gates so that the fence was reinforced in those areas. The gates consist of plastic pallets with sheet metal (to carry an electric charge) secured to the outward facing side, arranged like swinging doors. hen the pivot heels hit the pallets, the doors swing open to allow it to cross the fence line, and are quickly shut by elastic cords.

Electric Fencing - St. Ignatius

 

Raising Chickens in bear country is no easy task, as bears are easily able to breach traditional chicken coops. To keep grizzlies from developing this bad and potentially fatal habit, People and Carnivores designed a prototype "chicken tractor" to deploy on a farm that raises pastured poultry. The tractor is a movable, fully-enclosed, portable chicken coop surrounded by electric fence to deter bears from getting to the chickens.

Conflict Prevention Assessment - St. Ignatius

 

People and Carnivores is assisting the owner of a small farm in prime bear and wolf habitat with a variety of potential attractants (crops and livestock) to determine and proactively minimize the risk of large carnivore conflicts.

Carcass Composting - Mission Valley

 

People and Carnivores worked with local watershed groups to build a carcass composting site in the Ruby Valley. The carcass management site provides a solution for livestock owners to compost their dead animals and remove them as attractants from the landscape, thereby decreasing the risk of future conflicts with carnivores. This, in turn, keeps bears and wolves in the wild and out of trouble.

Bear Poles - Blackfoot Valley

 

Bear poles provide hunters, outfitters, and backcountry recreationists a way to keep their food, game meat, and livestock feed away from bears. People and Carnivores has built more than 250 bear poles across Greater Yellowstone and the High Divide.

Sanitation - Blackfoot Valley

 

People and Carnivores helps provide communities on the edge of wild country with bear-resistant containers to secure their garbage and keep bears away from unnatural food sources. In this community, we deployed Kodiak canisters, which are fully automated (for truck pick up) and certified bear-resistant by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee. This initiative significantly reduced conflicts in the area.

Conflict Prevention Assessment - University of Montana, Bandy Ranch

 

People and Carnivores is partnering with the University of Montana and the university's Bandy Ranch to integrate carnivore coexistence into a 2-week intensive class curriculum in late spring. The course will give students the opportunity to learn about coexistence tools and practices in a ranch setting, in addition to exploring other sustainable agriculture topics. Students will work with instructors to conduct a risk assessment on the ranch and develop conflict prevention recommendations.

Range Riding - Big Belt Range

 

Range riders combine knowledge of local carnivores with regenerative grazing techniques to proactively herd cattle and prevent depredations. Livestock often spread out when grazing and re-graze certain areas, making them vulnerable to predators, and potentially harming rangeland. By actively herding cattle and mimicking the instincts of wild ungulates, the herd gains safety in numbers. In time, a herd can re-learn the natural instinct to stay in groups even without constant direction from the range rider.
