Red wolves were declared extinct in the wild in the 1970s when their populations were devastated by [...]

Depredations: Rancher Predator Awareness teaches that the best defense is the herd

Just about a week ago we welcomed Mark Coats from Rancher Predator Awareness as he has graciously offered to assist us with seminars as he has time.
