Living With Foxes and Coyotes
November 7, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Transylvania County Library’s Discover Natural Transylvania series returns with a program titled Living With Foxes and Coyotes on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 6:30pm. Ashley Hobbs, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission assistant biologist for black bears and other furbearers, will share information about foxes and coyotes and coexisting with them. Western North Carolina is home to both the red and gray fox, although only the gray fox is a native. Both are similar in size to a small dog, weighing 7 to 15 pounds, but grays have shorter legs. They like diverse habitats and forage on a variety of prey, so they can be found in fields, pastures, meadows and open woodlands. Coyotes are native to North America and have a wide range. They are arguably the hardiest and most adaptable species on the continent. Like the fox, they live in a variety of habitats, from agricultural fields to forested regions and suburban neighborhoods. They also are opportunistic in finding food and resources. Light refreshments are provided by the Friends of the Library who support the Discover Natural Transylvania program series on the first Thursday of most months.
