The Wildlife Services Program is a cooperative effort of state and federal governments administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service through a memorandum of understanding with the North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner, Game and Fish and Health Departments, and State Water Commission. The program is headquartered at 2110 Miriam Circle in Bismarck.

Complaints of wildlife damage to crops and other property most often involved coyote depredation of livestock, blackbird and waterfowl damage to sunflowers and small grain crops, and damage to trees, shrubs, and flooded cropland caused by beavers. Wildlife Services also responds to skunk complaints, squirrel damage to trees, and rabbit damage to gardens. Wildlife Services also works with civilian and military authorities to evaluate and assist with a variety of wildlife hazards on airport facilities.
