This spring, the Big Hole Watershed Committee is partnering with the Centennial Valley Association to provide livestock carcass removal to Sage Creek Ranchers. Carcass removal is provided free-of-charge, and carcasses are hauled to the Beaverhead County Landfill. Removing carcasses from ranches during calving season – which is a high mortality period for the ranching industry – removes predator attractant, controls predator populations, and makes predators work for their lunch rather than feeding on livestock. Carcass removal may also prevent livestock-predator conflict. The carcass removal dump truck is on loan from the United States Fish and Wildlife Service – Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. For more information or to arrange for carcass removal, contact BHWC Wildlife Programs Technician, Kim Bingen, at 406-660-2158 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
