The FeatherSafe - Wildlife Deterrent is an electronic device which produces the sound of tractor trailer air brakes in order to keep deer, bears, and other animals away from the path of moving motor vehicles.
Inventor K. Allan Epton, a truck driver from Kelowna, BC, has created an electronic device which produces the sound of tractor trailer air brakes in order to keep deer, bears, and other animals away from the path of moving motor vehicles.
Should a collision occur, even minor contact with a deer can result in costly damage to a vehicle. In addition, the deer is usually subjected to a prolonged and painful death. In the case of a major collision, the animal can actually come through the windshield, resulting in major injuries, or perhaps even death for the driver and passengers. These same problems exist for other types of wildlife such as bears, moose, elk, as well as smaller animals such as dogs and cats. In turn, Inventor Epton has created a means by which all types of animals can be alerted and can avoid being struck by oncoming motor vehicles.
This clever invention utilizes high frequency sounds to repel animals. It is simply installed; no wiring required. The device is activated by a wireless remote button and can be removed easily from the vehicle to be carried by back packers, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. Feather-Safe reduces insurance costs by saving property, wildlife and most importantly, lives.
