I was looking at Ted talks and found this one. This Masai boy - Richard Turere wanted to keep lions from killing his family's cows. He rigged up flashing lights that flash around the compound and it works. How is it US Ranchers cannot learn something from him and invent something useful instead of killing wolves?

I know many African and other native people's have come up with ways to coexist with predators without killing them in mass slaughter, large guard dogs tend to work for one if you want to go back to basics.

There are so many ways to do this, Americans just like to shoot shit I guess.
