The public can learn about coyote biology and how to deal with coyotes in urban areas at a series of programs in Fort Wayne this month.

Sponsored by the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife, the free programs are scheduled for February 25 in Fort Wayne at the Allen County Library, Downtown Branch, 900 Library Plaza, 6-8 p.m.

Those wishing to attend should register in advance at or by calling (317) 234-2440.
Presenters will include the DNR furbearer biologist, DNR district wildlife biologists, DNR conservation officers and licensed nuisance animal control operators.

Coyotes are a native species now common in all Indiana counties, including urban and suburban areas. Presentations will cover ways to reduce conflicts with coyotes, questions regarding pet safety, and current hunting/trapping regulations. Licensed nuisance animal control operators will explain how they can work with residents to respond to coyote conflicts.
