Schedule 1 - Contract of Participation

Between Registrants and Saddle Hills County.

In an effort to manage predatory wildlife, the Saddle Hills County (“Municipality”) has approved a Wolf Depredation Management program (“Program”) for the purpose of removing wolves causing livestock depredation within the Municipality. Through this program, wolf hunters or trappers (“Registrants”) will receive monetary compensation (“Compensation”) for the carcass of a wolf hunted lawfully and according to Saddle Hills policy within the Municipality. The terms and conditions of participation in the Program are as follows:


STATUTORY ADHERENCE: While participating in the Program, the Registrant will, at all times, abide by all statutes, regulations, and bylaws enacted by the federal, provincial, and municipal governments, and the Registrant agrees not to violate any statutory or regulatory provision in any way. The relevant statutes include but are not limited to: the Firearms Act, the Petty Trespass Act, the Wildlife Act, and the Wildlife Regulations. Any Registrant who fails to strictly adhere to all relevant laws or Saddle Hills Policy will forfeit any right to compensation under the Program.

INDEMNIFICATION AND HOLD HARMLESS: The Registrant will indemnify the Municipality, its officers, representatives, agents and employees, against and hold them harmless from and against any and all liability for any and all claims, costs, damages and expenses or liability arising on account of injury or death to persons or damage or destruction to property resulting from or arising out of or in any way connected to the Program or participation in the Program.

PRECONDITIONS OF COMPENSATION: In order to obtain compensation, the carcass of a lawfully hunted or trapped wolf must be presented to an appropriate representative of the Municipality. Any carcass received by a representative of the Municipality will be marked. Any carcass that has been previously marked by a representative of the Municipality will be rejected and according to Article 9 of the policy, the Registrant will be removed from the program. To qualify for compensation, a wolf must be lawfully hunted or trapped within the boundaries of the Municipality. Any person who has not agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Contract of Participation (“Contract”) will be considered ineligible to receive compensation. The Registrant must state the location where each wolf was killed and must also produce appropriate documentation as follows:

  • If the wolf was hunted on private property, the Registrant must, at the time of presentation of the proof of carcass to a representative of the Municipality, produce either:
    (i) a letter of permission, written and signed by the owner or occupant of the property, authorizing the Registrant to hunt wolf on the property;
    (ii) proof that the Registrant is the owner or occupant of the property; and
    (iii) proof of Damage Control License if wolf is trapped or snared.
  • If the wolf was hunted on grazing leases, the Registrant must, at the time of presentation of the carcass to a representative of the municipality, produce one of the following:
    (i) proof that the Registrant is authorized to maintain livestock on that land;
    (ii) a letter of permission, written and signed by the person authorized to maintain livestock on that land, authorizing the Registrant to hunt wolf on the land;
    (iii) proof that the land is within 5 miles of property owned by the Registrant or lands on which the Registrant is authorized to maintain livestock, or lands for which the Registrant has a letter of permission as contemplated in (ii) just above and if the land is leased, a letter of permission, written and signed by the lessee and if the land is not leased, proof that it is not leased, and
    (iv) proof of Damage Control License if the wolf was trapped or snared.


COMPENSATION: If and only if the representative of the Municipality is satisfied that the Participant has complied with the terms and conditions of this Contract, the Reward will be paid by the Municipality to the Participant. The Reward will be paid by the Municipality to a successful Registrant at rate established by Councillor each adult wolf.
