Human-wildlife conflict is one of the emergent themes of contemporary conservation (Redpath et al., 2013; Sillero-Zubiri, Sukumar & Treves, 2007; Woodroffe, Thirgood & Rabinowitz, 2005) and has a number of negative side effects for both humans and wildlife. Where this conflict results in damages to crops, livestock or property (Gusset, Swarner, Mponwane, Keletile & McNutt, 2009; Hemson, Maclennan, Mills, Johnson & Macdonald, 2009), it may be financially beneficial to employ deterrents aimed at reducing spatial overlap between wildlife species and human-modified environments (e.g. King, Lawrence, Douglas-Hamilton & Vollrath, 2009; Hill & Wallace, 2012).
