Non-Lethal Predator Control


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

More non-lethal methods of controlling predators are available today than ever, but some people are not interested in a peaceful coexistence. Electric fences and locking boxes keep bears out, and flagged fence-lines and noisy, radioactive guard boxes keeps wolves at bay, but are they cost effective for struggling ranchers? Explore with us the alternatives to shooting predators and learn about the controversy surrounding non-lethal methods.

First Broadcast: 2004
