Big Lakes County council approved a program to enhance a wolf bounty at its regular meeting Nov. 27.
A story in the South Peace News on Dec. 4 incorrectly stated that council and administration found the wolf bounty ineffective.
“That is not the case,” communications co-ordinator Victoria Zahacy says in an e-mail to the South Peace News.
“These programs are enhancements to the wolf bounty program, not a replacement of the wolf bounty program.”
Council approved a recommendation by the agricultural advisory committee to initiate a targeted trapping program to reduce overall predators threatening and killing livestock.
South Peace News apologizes for any misinformation.
