Coyote hazing training course offered


An urban wildlife specialist is offering a coyote hazing course next month on Tybee Island.

Coyote hazing is a new tool used in managing the animals that involves the use of deterrents to move a coyote out of an area or discourage an undesirable behavior or activity.

Coyote hazing has been used successfully in communities such as Denver, Colo., to get rid of bold or aggressive behavior toward household pets and people, according to a news release.

Lynsey White Dasher will be presenting the workshop. It takes place at 7 p.m. Feb. 20 at the Tybee YMCA gym. The training is free.
