Wildlife Damage Management
With more humans moving into remote areas, and drought and wildfires negatively affecting wildlife, encounters between the two are becoming more common. The University of Nebraska Lincoln School of Natural Resource Science provides this Wildlife Damage Management Web site with information on just about every type of wildlife management issue. You can choose a "problem" creature and find some solutions. There's also an identification key using tracks, scat, and other signs.
