Seminar: How to keep coyotes out of neighborhoods

South Austinites like to keep it weird, but when things get a little too wild, it’s time to call in an expert.


Thursday’s seminar will offer tips for avoiding conflicts with coyotes.

Lynsey White Dasher, Director of Humane Wildlife Conflict Resolution for the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), will lead a seminar on Thursday evening to teach Austin residents how to avoid attracting coyotes to neighborhoods, to protect pets from coyotes, and to “haze” bold coyotes to restore their natural fear of humans.

If you can’t attend the seminar in person, you can watch it live online or on the city’s public access television station. The event is hosted by the  City of Austin and the Austin Animal Advisory Commission.
