Notes from the Field: Installing Fences in Bear Country »

The electric fencing program is another way that Defenders is helping individuals, landowners and communities coexist with wildlife. Bear conflicts on private lands are dramatically reduced when electric fencing is put around things that attract bears, like chicken coops, bee hives, fruit trees and small livestock. Human-caused mortality is the number one cause of grizzly deaths in the continental United States, but is also one of the most preventable. That is why programs like our fencing incentive are so critical to conservation and recovery efforts.
