Predator control

Coyote

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) recognizes predator management as an important  tool available to DWR staff, the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Wildlife Services personnel, when needed. Although predator management can be controversial, it is important under certain circumstances for the effective management of predators, prey populations,  and to mitigate economic loss.

The primary agent for predator control to protect livestock from predation is UDAF in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal Plant Health Inspection Service.
