Reindeer herders of Priuralskiy district introduced their know-how to reindeer husbandry. They use a quadcopter to gather reindeer together. According to a private reindeer herder Sergey Laptander, this is very convenient for gathering reindeer together on wooded areas, where it is difficult for a snowmobile to go.
“Practicality of tundra people is limitless. The primitive sound produced by the device gathers all the animals together, and also helps easily to find lost animals. Sergey is still concerned that the reindeer may get used to the sound, and it will not be as effective. He borrowed this idea from his neighbor Anton Tayberi, who purchased such device a year earlier”, Marina Yar, a representative of the Public chamber of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the chief editor of the Nenets-language newspaper “Nyaryana Ngerm” told about it to the news agency “Sever-Press”.
Now private reindeer herders are located in the south of Priuralskiy district. They come here from the foothills of the Polar Urals, crossing along almost the entire territory of their native district.
