The Groton Animal Foundation will hold a workshop on coyote safety from 9:30-11 a.m., Saturday April 25 at the Groton Senior Center, 102 Newtown Road, Groton.

Called “Coyotes on the Block: How to Protect Your Pets,” the free workshop will be given by a representative of The Humane Society of the United States on techniques that can help humanely resolve conflicts with coyotes. Known as ‘hazing,’ this method makes use of deterrents to move an animal out of an area or discourage an undesirable behavior or activity. Hazing can help maintain a coyote’s fear of humans and deter them from backyards and play spaces.
