Minnesota to Recieve Grants for Wolves

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced it will award $1 million dollars in grants to ten states to help livestock owners deal with the problem of wolves, and Minnesota will be included, Kare 11 said.
Minnesota will receive $100,000 to compensate livestock owners for losses caused by wolves, and help them to develop non-lethal ways to keep the wolves away from their livestock.
The program is called the Wolf Compensation and Prevention Program, and will provide funds to states and tribes who will be able to use they money to develop and support non-lethal activities that will reduce livestock loss caused by wolves, the Review Messenger said.
Rowan Gould, director of the Fish and Wildlife Service, said wolf populations are expanding in several parts of the nation, and this program will be a tool to minimize conflict where wolf and human activities overlap.
