Livestock producers can apply for payments for wolf presence

...livestock producers may now submit applications to the Mexican Wolf/Livestock Council to receive payments for wolf presence under the Mexican Wolf/Livestock Plan…The plan, developed two years ago by the council, came about to address wolf/livestock conflicts, which is one of the most significant impediments to Mexican wolf recovery. The plan is comprised of three-core strategies: payments for wolf presence, funding for conflict avoidance measures, and funding for depredation compensation.
