A family of Prairie dogs busy with their community police service – watching out for predators! And of course it makes for a good time to discuss family matters!
They are excellent at identifying predators and they have different calls for different predators. Scientists believe that their calls includes specific informations about the size of the predator, colours, direction of the approaching predator and the speed!
Truly extraordinary species to observe and learn from.

While wolves typically hunt for wild animals, they do occasionally prey on livestock. Considering the endangered status of these species and to manage wolf-livestock conflict, hundreds of ranchers in the United States are motivated to use tools like turbofladry, a electrical fencing barrier for wolf control. Such tools help save wolves and coexist.
