    On April 25, 1996, a notice was published in the Federal Register

Wildlife Service (Service) by the Smead Manufacturing Company for a 
permit to incidentally take, pursuant to Section 10(a)(1)(B) of the 
Endangered Species Act (Act) of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et 
seq.), threatened Utah prairie dog (Cynomys parvidens) in conjunction 
with otherwise legal activities including manufacturing facility 
construction and operation, in Cedar City, Iron County, Utah pursuant 
to the Implementation Agreement that implements the Habitat 
Conservation Plan prepared by the Smead Manufacturing Company.

provisions of the Act, the Service issued an incidental take permit
