Belmont Eastern Coyotes in New Hampshire

The Belmont NH Conservation Commission will host “Becoming Wolf: Eastern Coyotes in New Hampshire” Nov. 1, at 6 p.m., first floor at the Belmont Mill, at 4 Mill St. in Belmont. The program presenter, Chris Schadler, MS, Conservation Biology, has 40 years of experience in wolf and coyote research, sheep farming and teaching. She will discuss the myths that surround the coyote and cloud our understanding of it. Our eastern coyote shares genes with the eastern wolf, the grey wolf and the western coyote. Despite its ecological benefits, it is the most persecuted carnivore in North America. Chris will discuss coexistence strategies for those who farm, hike or garden. “Understanding the mind and ecology of the coyote can keep us one step ahead of problems.” The public is welcome to this interesting event. Light refreshments will be served. Registration is not required .
