Montana’s Blackfoot Valley has experienced many changes over the past decade. One of the most influential is the arrival and residence of grizzly bears. The population that has moved into the valley has caused livestock depredation and crop damage. Consequently, ranchers and conservationists search for tools to prevent conflicts. One such tool is the use of electric fence, which has proven effective in reducing conflicts between bears and private property, particularly in calving areas, bee yards, and temporary holding areas for livestock. A project underwritten by Montana State University and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will help support a graduate student’s project titled, “Effects of Electric Fence Permeability on Grizzly Bears in the Blackfoot Valley,” with goals of developing fencing that allows grizzly movement and passage, but hinders unwanted movement and private property damage.
