Hunters' Small Plane Crashes In South Central Utah

Jun 1, 2007 5:46 pm US/Mountain

LOA, Utah - The pilot and a passenger in a two-seat plane were killed Friday when the aircraft went down in the Parker Mountain area of Wayne County in south-central Utah, a U.S. Department of Agriculture spokeswoman said.

The plane was conducting surveillance work over the area for a USDA wildlife services program, said spokeswoman Carol Bannerman said.

The plane is owned by Utah’s Department of Agriculture and Food and used by the USDA in a predator eradication program that protects livestock from bears, cougars and coyotes, said Larry Lewis, a Utah department spokesman.

The pair were conducting a low-level flying operation to remove coyotes that were attacking lambs, Lewis said. The pilot was trained to fly in mountains and had his last skill review in December.
