Earlier this week U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis successfully fought against an amendment that would prohibit funding needed to control predators under the management of the federal government that attack ranch and farm livestock.

The amendment’s defeat came during debate on the Fiscal Year 2012 Agriculture Appropriations Bill. The amendment, introduced would have restricted Wildlife Services’ funding and operations. Wildlife Services ensures that each response to wildlife damage is biologically sound and in compliance with all federal, state and local laws and regulations.
