Lesser Prairie Chicken Informational Meetings Planned for Tuesday in Beaver and Woodward

Wed, 28 May 2014 04:43:39 CDT

Lesser Prairie Chicken Informational Meetings Planned for Tuesday in Beaver and Woodward The office of the Oklahoma Secretary of Energy and Environment and the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association are hosting a pair of meetings about the recent listing of the Lesser Prairie Chicken as "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act.

The meetings will be held today, May 28, 2014 at the Beaver County Fairgrounds at 9:30 a.m. and at the Southern Plains Research Station in Woodward at 2:30 p.m.

OCA officials say they have made a request for information about potential enforcement authorities, penalties, mandatory restrictions, consultations and other options available for noncompliance. They indicate that they would also like to know what might be considered take and what the possible consequences are. Representatives from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have agreed to attend to provide comments and answer questions that OCA members have. Additionally, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation has agreed to attend and discuss enrollment in the Range Wide Plan that can provide assurances regarding the concerns.

Any and all OCA members are invited to attend to find out about the potential impacts for your operations. We look forward to informative and professional meetings where attendees can learn and ask pertinent respectful questions so that we may move forward and expedite the delisting of the Lesser Prairie Chicken.

For more details about these meetings planned for Tuesday, May 28th- contact the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association office at (405) 235-4391.
