The ferromagnet UTeS with the Curie temperature TC = 87 K has been studied by measuring the magnetoresistance and Hall resistivity. The Hall coefficient at 0.5 T shows a large peak around TC, reflecting the extraordinary Hall effect. The present extraordinary Hall effect was, however, suppressed by applying a magnetic field of 5.5 T. From the results of the electrical resistivity and Hall resistivity measurements, UTeS was found to be a semimetal.
