The Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) offers predation compensation under the Wildlife Damage Compensation Program. Compensation is provided to producers for injury or death to eligible livestock, fowl or specialty animals by predators.
The program covers 100% compensation for death of livestock, fowl or specialty animals due to predation. Eligible species include cattle, sheep, bison, horse, hogs (excluding wild boar), elk, fallow deer, llamas and donkeys. This also includes ostriches, emus, ducks, geese, chickens, turkeys as well as other less common species.
As soon as a producer begins experiencing losses due to predation it is important that the kill site is preserved and that the SCIC is contacted. Taking pictures of the carcass and kill site are recommended to record evidence. The SCIC will send out a predation specialist to examine the situation and remove problem predators. After an inspection is complete, compensation will be determined and paid out.
