Wildlife Awareness & Predator Safety - Mar28
Whether working or playing in the wilderness, this course is a must. Predators can be a real threat especially to the sick, injured, young, and for dogs accompanying humans in the wild. Most remote cabins, lodges, and workers have non-lethal and lethal ways of protecting themselves from aggressive animals. It pays to be prepared. Become acquainted with the major animal groups of the Boreal forest and learn which are nuisances, harmless, and possibly dangerous. Learn what to do to avoid a dangerous encounter, and how to react should you encounter a dangerous animal. Practice using animal deterrents and commonly available firearms.
