- Up to 100 per cent compensation for injury or death to eligible livestock, fowl or specialty animals by predators.
- Up to 80 per cent of the animal’s value to cover veterinary costs, if the animal is injured.
- Compensation is eligible on predation by coyotes, bears, cougars, lynxes, fox, wolves, bobcats, birds of prey, scavenging birds, raccoons, skunks, badgers, minks, weasels or any other wild animal that causes injury or death to eligible livestock.
- If there is no evidence to prove a predator attack, no payment is issued.
- For beef calves, pricing will be determined using market sales data the week before, the week of, and the week after the loss. The producer will be compensated for the highest of these three values. If the market price is lower than the set minimum, the producer will receive the minimum amount.
- Compensation for other species will be determined using market sales data. Prices are based on a six-month average. For uncommon species, values will be determined on an as-needed basis.
- Registered livestock, fowl, and eligible specialty animals are compensated at 1.5 times the commercial value. Proof of registration is required.
- An inspection is required before compensation is paid.
- Claim assessments are based on the evidence of the carcass, the attack/kill site and indicators of the presence of a predator.
- If the adjuster determines that:
- There is sufficient evidence to prove a predator attack, the producer will receive full compensation.
- The evidence is inconclusive, but the probable cause of loss is a predator, the producer will receive 50 per cent compensation.
- There is no carcass or there is no evidence to prove a predator attack, no payment will be issued.
