Wildlife damage seems to be a greater concern today than 10 years ago. Controlling wildlife damage is a complex issue and the responsibility for its accomplishment has been given to diverse groups of private, local, county, state and federal entities. The types of programs vary from state to state, and often within a state several different programs are conducted by different agencies. It is the purpose of this paper to attempt to present information on the concerns of the state wildlife agencies regarding wildlife damage problems.
