ADMB Funding Sources
  • General fund appropriations from the Wyoming Legislature
  • An annual $100,000.00 request to the Wyoming Game & Fish Commission
  • A voluntary Wildlife Damage Management Stamp available from all license selling agents
  • A voluntary transfer of Landowner Coupons
  • A voluntary Brand Inspection Fee of ten-cents per head of livestock.  This is in addition to the current fee (set annually by local predator management district board) statutorily assessed and paid by the livestock producer.

Wildlife Damage Management Stamp  

Stamp price is $10.00 each for Calendar Year 2015.

     Any person may purchase a stamp to express support for the ADMB. The ADMB generously expresses a thank you to all individuals who purchase one.

     Effective January 1, 2000, a "Wildlife Damage Management" stamp will be available for sale. This stamp, issued at licensed selling agents as designated by the Wyoming game & fish commission may be purchased voluntarily.

     Proceeds from the sale of the stamp [excluding fifty cents ($.50) which the agent retains for each stamp sold] goes to help fund the activities of the Animal Damage Management Board. The Wyoming game & fish commission is authorized to retain such fees as related to those administrative costs which are required to design and print stamps, and collect, account for and disburse these funds to the ADMB.

     Purchase price of the stamp is determined annually by the ADMB in whole dollar increments and established at such a level to meet their financial obligations.  Proceeds are NOT used for compensation to individuals who experience damage caused by wildlife to private property.

Brand Inspection Fee  

     Any person paying the predator fee may pay an additional ten cents ($.10) per head [on livestock] to fund the predator management activities of the Wyoming Animal Damage Management Board created by Wyoming Statute 11-6-303.  Any fees collected pursuant to this subsection shall be deposited in the animal damage management account created by Wyoming Statute 11-6-306.  Livestock producers have the option to voluntarily contribute to the ADMB at the time of brand inspection.  This ten cents ($.10) per head is in addition to the other predator fees imposed.

     Starting on January 1, 2000 a check-off section on the standard "A" form used by the Wyoming Livestock Board's brand inspectors will be used to denote contribution to the ADMB of the voluntary assessment. If a producer chooses to contribute the ten cents ($.10) per head, statutory language requires two separate check to be written: one for the required brand inspection fees; and the second check for the voluntary contribution to the ADMB.
