As development continues throughout the Hudson Valley, coyotes are adapting to living in towns and are venturing into yards as a way to find food.
To help residents learn about ways to deal with coyotes, and to overcome what they say are "unwarranted fears," Clarkstown will host an education seminar and question and answer session with Frank Vincenti of the Wild Dog Foundation on Thursday, Jan. 11 at 7 p.m.
The event will focus on:
- The genetics of New York coyotes
- What coyotes eat
- How to prevent conflicts with coyotes
- The important role they play in the eco-system
- What is a coywolf
The free event will be held at the Clarkstown Town Hall, 10 Maple Ave., New City. For additional information, contact Supervisor George Hoehmann's office at 845-639-2050.
