A University of Montana graduate student has begun an investigation into how electric fencing affects the behavior of grizzly bears in human populated areas.
Kari Eneas is focusing her research on the effects of hot wire fencing surrounding chicken coops and other livestock areas, according to an article in Montana Untamed.
Eneas will work with landowners in the Mission Valley to track collared grizzlies movement around the areas where the fences are used. She will use the data to gauge the effectiveness of electric fencing in influencing the bears’ behavior and see if it could be used as a method to steer bears away from populated areas.
