This sourcebook provides information useful to producers of all types of livestock in the Rocky Mountain States. The applicability of this information to specific livestock operations will depend upon the characteristics of the operation and the willingness and ability of producers to experiment with various techniques and procedures. Most producers will have experience with some methods of preventing losses to predators. Information in this booklet may provide new insights or sources of information for learning more about methods of depredation management. The booklet also includes information about techniques others are using, and provides opportunities for producers to contact people willing to share their ideas and whom may also want to learn from experiences of others. We also emphasize current research on predator control by including an up-to-date list of references and encourage producers to learn more about these methods in coming years.

Booklet is 33 pages, with color illustrations.
