Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 1:15PM

In response to widespread citizen concerns over the encroachment of coyotes, wild hogs, and ground hogs into urbanized areas, Anderson County and County Councilmember M. Cindy Wilson will be hosting a nuisance wildlife seminar June at the Civic Center of Anderson. The event is scheduled to run from 8:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

Noel E. Myers, State Director of Wildlife Services for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), and other presenters will offer seminar-style instruction on the behavior, control, and management of nuisance wildlife.  The seminars will be followed (weather-permitting) by an outdoor demonstration of traps and other tools available to landowners seeking to manage nuisance wildlife on their properties. 

This program is free to the public.  There will be no charge for attendance or materials. Onsite registration for the event will begin at 8:30 a.m.  Instructional seminars begin promptly at 9 a.m.
