Agenda—

 

“Urban Coyotes-Latest Research and Problem Avoidance”—We will review the latest in urban coyote research and gain a better understanding of the national perspective on urban coyotes.  The biology and ecology of the urban coyote will be discussed in the context of how to use that information to avoid “issues”.  Lastly, various management technique options from public education, to hazing, to selective removal will be discussed.

 

“Feral Hogs in DFW”—Feral hogs are an invasive exotic species that are quickly adapting to living in urban environments.  They do considerable ecological damage and have been linked to a wide variety of potentially zoonotic diseases.  We will discuss the realities of feral hog biology, and look at various models for control efforts around the DFW area.
