Nuisance wildlife seminar June 5

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 on Monday, June 5, 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.
Onsite registration for the event will begin at 8:30 AM.  Instructional seminars begin promptly at 9:00 AM. There is no cost to the public.
