A Tsaatan [Dukha] woman ties down two reindeer in a fenced-off area. To protect them from wolves, the Tsaatan usually tie down their reindeer to notched stakes or round them up in [corrals] at night. During the day they are released into the mountains to browse for fresh leaves, lichen and mushrooms in the summer and lichen buried under the snow in winter.
