Nuisance Wildlife Workshop – May 16, 6 p.m.

Coyotes and wild hogs are becoming an increasing problem in both rural and suburban communities.  Coyotes are a major predator for calves, goats and sheep.  Wild hogs are an invasive species that cause serious harm to both the environment and agriculture production. 

This workshop will cover management techniques for these animals to help ranchers and homeowners reduce their property damage from these destructive wildlife.
