The goal is to reduce livestock losses from coyotes and wolves.

Producers who are experiencing livestock kills by problem predators can now access a free program from the province. 


The department of Conservation and the Manitoba Trapper Association have finalized an agreement which will see the implementation of a problem predator removal program. 


To access the program producers must report losses to the nearest Manitoba Agricultural Services office. 


A claim number will be assigned allowing the producer to contact the Manitoba trappers association to have a qualified trapper assigned. 


Only humane trapping methods will be permitted, and only problem predators will be removed. 


Livestock kills are a costly problem, and affect a wide area across the province. 


Last year more than $340 000 was paid out on 1139 individual insurance claims.
