Draft Environmental Assessment for Public Comment in Nebraska
Nebraska Ag Connection - 04/11/2018

The USDA, APHIS, Wildlife Services (WS) has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA), "Predator Damage Management in Nebraska April 2018" to update and replace WS-Nebraska's 2016 pre-decisional Predator Damage Management EA." This EA has been updated to better explain the WS-Nebraska Predator Damage Management Program and expand upon the analysis of the proposed action. This EA addresses recent literature published on the subject of predator management, incorporates WS-Nebraska's updated Biological Assessment, and addresses additional concerns that have been raised by the public. This EA is available for review and comment prior to issuing a decision on the alternative to be selected and its associated environmental impacts.

The proposed action is to implement an integrated approach using a variety of methods to reduce predator damage to agricultural resources, aircraft and air passenger safety, natural resources, and human and pet health and safety.

Wildlife Services is seeking review and comments on the pre-decisional EA from interested parties. To receive full consideration, comments must be received by the close of business on May 23.

Interested parties may view the EA by clicking on the following link:

All comments received, including the names and addresses of those who comment, will be part of the public record and will be released for public review as required and allowed by law.
