The Utah prairie dog is found only in Southern Utah. While beneficial to ecosystem health, the Utah prairie dog has historically been in conflict with agriculture and other human activities. This fact sheet describes recent changes to laws regarding Utah prairie dogs and new conservation programs that allow residents of southern Utah to both remove offending animals and conserve Utah prairie dog colonies.
