Document Description
CDCR plans to install anti-perching devices on fence post and lamp post at five institutions to help further minimize wildlife use of the Statewide Electrified Fence and to ensure that the Department continues to be compliance with the objectives of the Statewide Electrified Fence (E-Fence) Habitat Conservation Plan. Anti-perching devices (wire) consists of 2-4 inch lengths of stiff wire connected to a plastic base and is attached to perching sites in and near the E-Fence perimeter. The devices will reduce the ability of birds to perch near the E-Fence, thus reducing exposure to accidental electrocution. Installing the anti-perching devices will allow the Department to continue to use the most effective methods to minimize bird deaths while maintaining the necessary security at the state prisons.
