HENDERSON, Ky. – Wildlife experts met with local citizens concerned about coyotes and other nuisance wildlife on Thursday evening at Community Baptist Church.
The meeting was organized after residents in the Balmoral neighborhood spoke at a Henderson Board of Commissioners meeting to share safety concerns for small children and domestic pets.
Last winter, Wildlife Animal Control, a local firm certified by the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife to deal with nuisance wildlife, trapped a number of coyotes near the Balmoral neighborhood to help address over-population and neighborhood safety issues. But the concerns by residents of the area linger.
