Something for everyone

After a 35-day government shutdown at the end of 2019, Congress approved a spending package to fund the federal government for the next fiscal year. Part of this package included $1.38 million for Wildlife Services (WS) to hire employees responsible for nonlethally reducing conflict between predators and livestock in 12 states.
