Depredation systems are reasonable; farmers can be greatly affected by crop damage. However, some states should focus more on proactive efforts rather than reactionary efforts. Examples of proactive efforts can be wildlife studies before plantings, barriers, fencing, and crop choice. This may require counseling and more interaction with the farmers, the land, and the animals. The proactive approach can be beneficial to decrease depredation conduct.
In today’s increasing concern for food safety, more attention can be paid to wild animal health risks in these state systems. As more light is shed on crop health risks, law may require more attention in the future. Just as counseling and proactive conduct can ease crop damage, health risks from cropland wild animals can be decreased as well. The consumer, the wildlife, and the farm can potentially benefit from such approaches in the future.
