Montana's Bitterroot Valley
Wind River Bear Institute - Karelian Bear Dogs
"Montana-based Wind River Bear Institute has developed a noninvasive
method they call Bear Shepherding to reduce human-bear conflict.
The method teaches bears how to recognize and avoid human territorial
boundaries. Bear Shepherding includes preventative education where
communities are taught how to eliminate the most common cause of
conflict such as food attractants, food conditioning, and habituation
to people and their 'territory.'
