Oklahoma laws generally grant citizens substantive lattitude to deal with wildlife problems and considerable assistance is available from USDA Wildlife Services. However, many landowners may prefer to employ individuals who are skilled and educated in handling human/wildlife conflicts. Permitted and regulated by the ODWC, Nusiance Wildlife Control Operators (NWCOs) are not state employees. They operate as private enterprises and normally charge a fee or solicit a donation for their services. 

You can find a Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation

Should you encounter a young fawn or hatching bird in your backyard, wildlife biologists with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation says it is best to leave these newborns alone. While leaving these young animals alone is the best course of action, wilflife rehabilitators across the state will take in injured wildlife. To find a rehabilitator in Oklahoma County and a list of the species they accept, please visit Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation.
