State Offering Prairie Dog Control Programs

June 17, 2014, 2:21 PM


South Dakota ranchers and producers who want unwelcomed prairie dogs off their properties can contact state officials for help.

Wildlife officials say crews can help control prairie dogs that have encroached onto private land from adjacent public land.

Keith Fisk is a wildlife damage program administrator with the state's Game, Fish and Parks. Fisk says landowners with at least 20 acres of prairie dog colonies within one mile of the public land are eligible to receive state assistance.

The department must receive the complaints from landowners seeking help by Aug. 15. Officials will control the invaded colonies during the fall.

Landowners with complaints regarding prairie dogs encroaching from adjoining private land must contact the state's Department of Agriculture.
