Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Washington and Oregon all have funding and theirs vary from other states because they have wolves. If you have problems with a Husky it could be because some have a lot of wolf in them. If you're dealing with a pack of Huskies you could have a serious problem with keeping your livestock alive. Don't let the "local" rules confuse you. Contact your county commissioners and Sheriffs office with any questions. You can call always contact your County Commission office and ask to attend a Commissioners meeting thats open to the public so you can ask questions. They'll allocate time for you at the meeting and answer your questions. It will all be documented in the minutes (you can get a copy later if you like.)Be prepared and you won't lose anymore money to deadbeat dog owners who let their dogs kill your livestock then won't pay you for them(trust me the county will collect from them) https://agsci.source.colostate.edu/...-for-reintroducing-gray-wolves-into-colorado/Seems like a pain in the behind (as it always is in dealing with the government) with all the applications and affidavits and then waiting until March. Probably not even worth the aggravation unless it's a major loss like one might have with cattle or sheep.
I wonder too if it's only in cases where the dog's owners cannot be located, otherwise it lets them off the hook, which doesn't seem right.
273.120. Examination of applications, pass judgment. — The county commission shall between the first and fifteenth days of March of each year hereafter meet in session to consider and examine said applications and affidavits covering losses over a period of one year, which said year shall be from the first of March of the year prior to the meeting of said commission to the last day of February of the same year on which it meets. The commission shall examine carefully each application and affidavit which has been filed before the first day of March, and after hearing all evidence in the matter shall pass such judgment as the commission may deem equitable.
I'm still trying to do the right thing. This must be resolved in some fashion because I'm already looking hard to goats just to test fencing and my management ability. A jenny will be coming to. My dogs will be taught how to work around here, but neighbors being stupid will get into it with her.You are an honorable man, Mr C.
