Wildlife series takes on coyotes
KINGMAN - Coyotes are among the most adaptable animals on the planet, despite human encroachment, and they can teach us what it means to be a true survivor.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department's Region 3 office in Kingman will explore the facts and myths of this animal when the latest installment of the Summer Wildlife Series gets under way at 6:30 p.m. today at the Kingman Mohave County Library, 3269 Burbank Street.
"The adaptability of the coyote made researching this animal quite educational," said Zen Mocarski, the public information officer for the Kingman Game and Fish office. "Their diet and behavior is influenced greatly by where they occur and the available prey base."
The program will run about 45 minutes, which will allow time for a question and answer period. The summer education program is free, but seating is limited to 51 people and will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis, said Mocarski.
The first presentation on venomous critters reached capacity and Mocarski encourages people to come early.
For those who can't attend but would like to learn more about coyotes, the presentations are posted each week on the Region 3 Facebook site, which can be accessed by searching for AZGFD Kingman.
The remainder of the schedule includes mountain lions, June 28; wildlife waters, July 12; fishing Arizona - crayfish, July 26; and the history of archery, Aug. 9.
