Any producer wishing to access this program can do so by completing the V.S.I. application form and either stop in at the Agricultural Services Department in Nampa or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a V.S.I. card and number.
Every producer should have their own number - please don't borrow someone else's.
The producer is required to present the card to the veterinarian providing the medical services, who will then subtract, up front, the portion of the charges that V.S.I. will pay on the producer's behalf.
Your number will not change, but you are required to call the County office each year in September to let us know if your circumstances have changed and if you wish to continue using V.S.I. services for the following year. If we do not hear from you, your name will be deleted from the database that we must forward annually to the Veterinarian Clinics and the V.S.I. Manager.
Producer's Guide to Wolf Predation and Scavenging
Evidence of an Attack
- Blood may also drain from puncture wounds. Lacerations and puncture wounds on the hide's exteriour will show corresponding signs of hemorrhaging on the interior of the hide and tissue.
- The body may be stretched out in an unnatural position.
- When an animal died of disease or other conditions not related to predation, the carcass tends to be curled up with the legs tucked in. Animals scavenged tend to be bloated or in rigor.
- When there is no blood on the ground around the carcass, or blood may have drained onto the ground from body cavities such as the nose.
- When there are no corresponding signs of hemorrhaging on the interior of the hide or in adjacent tissue vis a vis lacerations and puncture wounds found on the hide's exterior.
