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.
