Teach the Tormentor to be Tolerant: Humane Harassment ~ 1 hr
There is a groundhog eating my garden, how do I kill it? I have a raccoon in my trash, can you trap it? Rehabilitators are overwhelmed with animals in care and forget we also can help those that never need darken our doorstep. Studies have proven that trapping/relocating does not work and lethal options are often inhumane. By teaching simple techniques, lives can be spared and intake numbers decreased. A humane harassment program can be as simple as having tips posted by the phone or as elaborate as offering public programming. This presentation goes over implementation of a humane harassment program, where to find good tips, and what the public has responded to at our center.
