The most notable conflict arising from the return of the wolf to our cultivated landscapes concerns grazing livestock. Wolves will hunt sheep and goats if they are not adequately protected. Area-wide herd protection is the necessity for coexistence and can significantly prevent wolf-caused damage to grazing animals. This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions and a list of all required materials and tools for livestock owners to build a permanent electric fence. Important information: Up to 100 % of the costs for measures to prevent livestock from being attacked by wolves are financed within the EU-directive’s framework for preventive livestock protection.
