Links & Resources
Below, we have listed some documents, articles, videos and website links that we hope will provide some more information about coexisting with wildlife, and more specifically, with wolves and other predators.
Many of these links and documents contain valuable resources such as tool kits, in hopes that more livestock owners will put forth an effort to utilize non lethal measures first, before resorting to lethal measures to protect their livestock and have been helpful in helping us summarize this information on our site.
