Resources fostering coexistence with our wild-neighbors

Great resources to educate yourself and others about our wild neighbors.

From our friend John Eberhart.



Scrolling down this web page, please see _Coyotes In Our Midst: Coexisting
With An Adaptable and Resilient Carnivore_. Click the link to download a free copy of the 68-page publication in .PDF




Another excellent reference, now in its second edition, is John Hadidian’s
_Wild Neighbors: The Humane Approach to Living With Wildlife_. Many
wildlife “problems” homeowners confront aren’t actually problems in the first place, the book explains. How do you prevent conflicts and resolve ones when they do happen?

Covered are coyotes as well as these other wild
neighbors: armadillos, bats, beavers, black bears, bobcats, chimney swifts, chipmunks, cougars, crows, deer, foxes, house mice, house sparrows, moles, muskrats, opossums, pigeons, pocket gophers, porcupines, prairie dogs, rabbits, raccoons, rats, skunks, snakes, starlings, tree squirrels, voles, waterfowl, woodchucks, and woodpeckers.

_Wild Neighbors_ has great reviews on Amazon. One reviewer wrote, “Even
USDA Wildlife ‘Services’ has a policy which states, ‘Preference is given to nonlethal methods when practical and effective.’ This is a book about these methods…you should see this book…on the shelf in Cooperative Extension offices, municipal animal control offices, state and district wildlife offices, USDA Wildlife ‘Services’ offices, local pet shelters, rehabilitation centers, and in wildlife control operator offices. The fact that it isn’t on most of these shelves is telling.”

Today (Nov. 11) at Amazon $27.95 new; from $3.55 used.
ISBN-10: 0974840084
ISBN-13: 978-0974840086
