USDA APHIS’ Wildlife Services
If a producer needs assistance with depredating cormorants and needs to submit an application, the first step is to contact the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services. You may contact Dust’n Lunsford at Cell: (662)-336-5093.
USDA Wildlife Services will provide the producer with a depredation application or a website link to the application online. The agency also will complete a Wildlife Damage Report that must be submitted with the depredation application to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
