Education is the most important component in learning to co-exist with coyotes, and Long Beach Animal Care Services is inviting the community to two coyote workshops this week.
Rebecca Dmytryk, founder and president of Wildlife Emergency Services, will share her extensive knowledge about coyotes, including how to stay safe, keep pets protected, and use proper hazing techniques to help maintain coyotes’ fear of humans. A question and answer session will follow each presentation.
The workshops will be held at the following dates and locations:
Thursday, August 27 – 6:30 pm
El Dorado Nature Center
7550 E Spring Street
Friday, August 28 – 6:30 pm
El Dorado Park West Senior Center Bridge Room
2800 Studebaker Road
By educating yourself and your neighbors and using proper hazing techniques to keep coyotes wild, you can help to establish a peaceful co-existence and help make Long Beach the safest large city for people and animals.
