The Polish government pays compensation for livestock killed by wolves. Mysłajek advises farmers on erecting electric fences. He has helped revive the use of two deterrents that, for reasons no one quite understands, wolves find particularly scary: red bunting (hung around sheep pens) and the bark of the fluffy white Tatra mountain sheepdog.
Shepherds spend a few centuries breeding dogs from those which scare wolves. Wolves are scared of dogs which have been bred to scare wolves.
Blimey, you might even think there’s something to this evolution shit.
