Carlos Sanchez director de la Fundación y Lorenzo García who was in charge of the Laser trials in Campanarios de Azaba, explained Marta and Floris hoy they think the animals will react to the laser and planned the best strategy to understand the results that will come up of the future wolf trials.

It was interesting for the four of them to meet and be able to share their vision of the damage that the wolf is causing in Spain and the benefits that Argilaser technology will have for Livestock farmers. Fundación and Volterra finalized and sign the document that the Spanish authorities required to carry out trials with protected species.

New videos of animals response to the laser

Liverpool Jhon Moore University records the reaction of a fox to the handheld laser

 

LMJU University continue with their handheld laser trials.

While badgers were the focus of this experiment, they were not the only animals to cross the laser’s path. Here we can see the handheld system successfully encouraging a fox to move away from an open area. This is promising as it shows the laser’s potential to be used in encouraging larger mammals to move.
