WESTON, Conn. -- Coyotes and how to live with them will be the focus of a talk by Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection wildlife biologist Chris Vann set for Sunday, April 26, at 2 p.m. in the Weston Public Library.

Since they were first documented in Connecticut in the 1950s, coyotes have expanded their range and are now common throughout the state, according to Vann.  They are opportunistic and live in a variety of habitats including wooded suburbs, parks, beach fronts and office parks, he added.

“Their ability to survive and take advantage of food sources found in and around man-made habitats has resulted in an increase in coyote sightings and related conflicts,” according to Vann.

Vann’s talk is sponsored by Aspetuck Land Trust, The Nature Conservancy and the Town of Weston.

Vann said his presentation, “Biology and Control of Eastern Coyotes in Connecticut,” will be comprehensive and include both non-lethal and lethal control methods.
