Coyote 101 with Laura Hajduk
Tuesday, June 14 • 7:00PM
Laura Hajduk, wildlife biologist with the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, will discuss basic coyote biology, ecology and behavior at the Buttonwood Park Zoo on Tuesday, June 14 at 7 p.m. We will learn how coyotes use the landscape, what food they eat, how they communicate and what their family life is like.
Coyotes may be found in every city or town in the Commonwealth, except the Islands, and it is estimated that at least 10,000 reside in the state. Ms. Hajduk will also explore the basics of living with wildlife, how to make your yard less attractive for coyotes, and how to keep your pets safe.
Laura Hajduk is currently the Furbearer and Black Bear Project Leader at the Field Headquarters in Westborough and one of the state’s top authorities on coyotes. In addition to coyotes, she has researched other wildlife such as bobcats, black bears and beavers and has extensively lectured on these animals.
The free lecture is sponsored by the Buttonwood Park Zoological Society.
