Across the State of Wyoming"

                                

Mission Statement-

- The ADMB Mission is to coordinate and implement an integrated animal damage management program, based on the best available science, for the benefit of human and natural resources throughout Wyoming.

 




"It is important to the economy of the state, to maximize agricultural production and at the same time to promote, protect and conserve the wildlife resources."

-1999 Wyoming Legislature



Creation and Composition-

-The Wyoming Animal Damage Management Program was created by the 1999 Legislature and is administered by a 15 member (12 voting, 3 ex-officio non-voting members) board, commonly referred to as the Animal Damage Management Board, or simply the "ADMB".




 Purpose-

-The ADMB was established for the purposes of mitigating damage caused to livestock, wildlife and crops by predatory animals, predacious birds and depredating animals or for the protection of human health and safety. 

 




What's New With the ADMB?

- Oral Vaccination and Protection of Striped Skunks (Mephitis mephitis) against rabies

-Skunks are one of the most important rabies vector species in North America due to their wide geo-graphic distribution, high susceptibility to the rabies virus, and tendency to inhabit areas around human dwellings and domestic animals. Oral vaccination is a cost-effective, socially acceptable technique often used to control rabies in terrestrial wildlife; however, control of rabies in skunks has proven especially challenging due to the lack of a vaccine effective by the oral route in this species. In this study, we examined the antibody response of captive striped skunks (Mephitis mephitis) to ONRAB and tested the protection afforded by the vaccine against rabies virus.
