INTRODUCTION
Livestock predation occurs in nearly all rangelands around the world, and usually leads to some level of
investment in predator control in order to minimise economic losses. These measures are often controversial
due to uncertainty about their effectiveness and concerns about their impacts on animal welfare,
biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and populations of endangered species.
