The City of Longview Animal Control will host a free educational seminar about wildlife control in the East Texas area entitled “Living with Local Wildlife.”
The free seminar is open to the public and will be held from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, December 7, at the Longview Exhibit Building, 1123 Jaycee Dr. The purpose of the seminar is to provide education about the types of wildlife in the East Texas area, especially those that are deemed to be nuisance animals. The seminar will include information about nuisance animals, prevention, and coexistence.
The seminar is free, but pre-registration is requested. The featured speakers for the event are Dwayne Noble of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Enforcement Division and Prudi Koeninger of the DFW Wildlife Coalition. Longview Animal Control Officers will also present information concerning rabies and local animal control issues.
According to Longview Environmental Health Manager Geoff Heinicke, “Longview Animal Control receives numerous calls for wildlife issues throughout the year. Even though Longview is an urban area, the reality is that we live in the Piney Woods of East Texas, which is abundant with wildlife. Through this seminar we want to educate the public of the options for coexistence with the wildlife that are native to the Longview area.”
