Ag News - Black vultures pose real threat to livestock
Placeholder Image
Black vulture attacks on livestock are a serious and costly issue for many Tennessee producers who experience losses of livestock. Unfortunately, producers are limited in legal methods of removing problem black vultures since they are protected under the federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Previously, the only legal option to protect livestock from depredation was to apply annually for an individual black vulture depredation permit for $100.
