Tragedy strikes The Graziere Ranch, Liebenberg family

Photo by Louise Liebenberg - The GraziereOur good friend and wildlife advocate Louise Liebenberg has experienced a horrific tragedy.

Early this week, her barn in High Prairie (Alberta), burned down. Thirty ewes and lambs, Border Collie Ginger, seven future livestock guardian puppies and two cats lost their lives in the fire.

Louise and her family are reeling. This loss is not only a setback to their livelihood, but to their hearts.

A strong advocate of predator-friendly ranching, Louise has spoken at two of our conferences on how Livestock Guardian Dogs, among other methods, can protect both ranchers and the wildlife surrounding them. Her work has saved countless lives of coyotes, wolves and other predators.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Louise and her family this week as they work through their grief and try to find their way forward.
