Crying wolf has its costs


The farmer who cried wolf generated some discussion at the council table in Head, Clara and Maria last week.


A lamb killed by a wolf has prompted the need for the municipality to obtain a livestock evaluator. Commonplace in southern Ontario, the job of a livestock evaluator is to ascertain the circumstances behind the death of livestock, and report those facts back to the municipality. When it is found that livestock has been killed by animals such as wolves or coyotes, the owner is reimbursed for the value of the animal by the municipality, which in turn is reimbursed by the province.


In this rare case in Head, Clara and Maria, council decided to deputize its road superintendent as a livestock evaluator. The value of the lamb will be determined by its market price on the day it was killed.


"How often is this going to happen that we need a livestock evaluator on the payroll," reeve Lita Therrien wondered.
