Wildlife is part of our natural environment, but there can be problems when wildlife and people mix. Problems include:
- wildlife in residential areas;
- deer or elk in haystacks;
- ducks in crops;
- predators killing or harassing livestock; or
- chance encounters in the wild.
It is important to understand how we can safely co-exist with these animals and what options are available for dealing with problems.
