Prairie Dog Legislation and Burrowing Owls in Nebraska

Prairie Dog Legislation and Burrowing Owls in Nebraska

EC1785

Nebraska legislation has historically recognized the black-tailed prairie dog as a pest on rangelands across the state. The western burrowing owl is one species that uses the prairie dog colonies during major parts of its life cycle. Because of habitat loss and degradation resulting from prairie dog control, the burrowing owl is included in the current list of Tier-I at-risk species determined by the Nebraska Natural Legacy Project.
