22. not direct for me, no

some third hand info for New Mexico

I live along a major transportation corridor and between a small town and another hamlet, so large predators are not really a problem for me. We get an occasional lion kill and bears wander through but this isn't suitable wolf habitat due to the level of highway traffic and human population. Most of my losses are due to trains and motor vehicles. (those claims are bad enough to collect LOL!)

the grant program you linked sounds much more proactive and I would guess may get better results for all concerned (without reading it too carefully). My understanding of the New Mexico program is that they were just paying for confirmed kills and not really motivating folks to learn non-lethal protective measures.

Though 100K would only cover between 100 and 200 head of cattle, provided none of that money was used for any other purposes than claims such as administration or inspection etc. No idea what the wolf numbers or losses are there.

re-reading that, it says the 100K is for setting up grant programs, so it isn't clear how much money is actually used in compensation or even training
