Rain clouds overhead, Zack Strong was on his way to being drenched, striding around the perimeter of an hours-old flagged electric fence on a Walton Ranch pasture, trying to make sure everything was in place.

The fencing, called turbofladry, is intended to ward off wolves that have caused Spring Gulch ranchers to lose sleep for months. And for Strong to be stringing up the equipment alongside U.S. Department of Agriculture-Wildlife Services personnel marked one of the rare occasions where non-lethal techniques have been used to try to prevent wolf depredations in Wyoming, at least in recent years.
