    Well-trained shepherds, dogs minimize human-carnivore conflicts

    Dr. Igor Khorozyan is well known for his works on large mammalian carnivores and wildlife assessment. He and his Iranian colleagues tried to study individual leopard attacks on sheep and goats in 34 villages near Golestan National Park.

Tehran Times had an interview with Dr. Khorozyan to discuss some of the latest issues in this field.
