Dealing with Pet and Wildlife Damage

Properly planned management can still encourage wanted wildlife species while minimizing nuisance wildlife problems. Specifics vary on a case-by-case basis. However, successful plans include taking steps to prevent damage before the damage occurs, monitoring for signs of new damage, and minimizing further damage through a combination of approved techniques. You will rarely be able to eliminate nuisance wildlife, and minimizing nuisance wildlife is an ongoing process. For information on managing nuisance wildlife problems, contact the USDA Wildlife Services/IDNR wildlife conflicts hotline at 1-800-893-4116. If you have a nuisance wildlife problem, you will find that many of the nuisance animals are regulated and protected by federal, state, and/or local regulations.
