Urban wildlife presentation Thursday
KINGMAN - With recent events around Kingman and in other areas of Arizona in mind, Game and Fish Department personnel will discuss Urban Wildlife in the second installment of the Summer Wildlife Series Thursday.
All presentations, which will be held through August, run from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Powerhouse Visitor's Center, 120 W. Andy Devine Ave. Personnel will remain to answer questions.
"Urban wildlife seems like a timely subject," said Zen Mocarski, public information officer for the Game and Fish Kingman office. "And, as the population continues to grow, people will have increased encounters with wildlife."
Mocarski said the presentation will include information on Game and Fish response, decision-making, capture methods, dangers, and past issues.
"Recent human-wildlife encounters provide an opportunity to educate the public," Mocarski said. "There are just too many myths out there and few people truly understand the dangers and potential problems associated with encounters and captures."
