Abstract
  • Despite a relative decline in the size of Oregon's sheep industry, the problem of sheep depredation remains a serious economic and environmental dilemma in need of objective examination and innovative solutions. An investigative report on the problem as it occurs in Benton County can contribute to the information required to realize this end. Domestic dogs and coyotes are the county's principal sheep predators, with foxes, bears, bobcats, and large birds being responsible for a relatively insignificant loss. Two organizations share the predominant responsibility for reducing stock loss due to predation in Benton County: the Benton County Dog Control Board, and the Oregon Interagency Predator and Rodent Control Committee, through which the division of Wildlife Services assists Oregon residents. KEY WORDS: Patterns of predation, Magnitude of loss, Ineffectual information, Perception, Federal restrictions on control, M-44s, Trapping, Land use.
