LDWF to Hold Meeting on Urban Foxes June 7 in Lafayette

The Louisiana Department and Wildlife and Fisheries will hold an informational meeting on urban foxes and nuisance wildlife control June 7 (Wednesday) at 6:30 p.m. in Lafayette. The meeting will be held at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service/NOAA Building conference room located at 646 Cajundome Blvd. in Lafayette.

The presentation will provide information on fox biology and behavior in urban areas of Louisiana, citizen science and Fox Finders’ research results and nuisance wildlife control regulations. LDWF biologists and Dr. Linda Hooper-Bùi, an associate professor with LSU’s Department of Environmental Sciences, will field questions regarding urban foxes and control of nuisance wildlife on private property.

Foxes have adapted to living in urban and residential areas and can sometimes cause concern for citizens unfamiliar with living with wildlife. This meeting will detail how to deal with foxes and other wildlife that make their homes in urban areas.
