Obviously as concerned as everyone else that loves our native birds, I asked a few questions. Here is some additional info.  
**The permit is up to 3 birds and they can reapply. Permit holder must be a rancher.  The max take for the state per year is 350 birds per   

**In the budget proceedings going on now in the Missouri Legislature, a line was added last week for $300,000 to MDC for Black Vulture mitigation. I'm not sure what that means and am watching to see where it goes.  

**According to the brochure from USFWS payment is available for injury to livestock:
"The USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) provides benefits to livestock producers for livestock deaths in excess of normal mortality if caused by attacks from avian predators and animals reintroduced into the wild by the Federal Government. LIP payments are equal to 75% of the average fair market value of the livestock."


For what it is worth.......

Interesting that a federal permit program is being administered through an entity that does not have wildlife ecology and management in its wheelhouse.    Dana Ripper Arrow Rock MO

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has established a permit system for Missouri farmers/ranchers to kill Black Vultures causing depredation to livestock.  The program will be administered through the Missouri Farm Bureau.  See:   https://mofb.org/missouri-farm-bureau-announces-black-vulture-depredation-permit/

The permits are for agriculture only, so this program does not address the problems being experienced at state parks and boat accesses where Black Vultures have been damaging automobile soft trim parts and other items such as door trim on buildings.
