Foxlight to deter pumas, but how about Andean foxes?

Hi everyone,

Another interesting article on Mongabay recently about human-wildilfe conflicts. This time on the use of Foxlights to reduce livestock depredation by pumas in Northern Chile. Interestingly, Andean foxes that show up in the area were not so impressed by the moving lights. Any experiences with other fox species and their response to visual deterrences? And how about your experiences using Foxlights (or other light systems) in general?

Looking forward to hear from you all!
