Glendale meetings to discuss coexisting with coyotes

As sightings of coyotes grow in number along the foothills, the Pasadena Humane Society is hosting two public meetings in Glendale next week to educate residents on how to coexist with these animals.

Glendale has had its share of run-ins with urban coyotes, which caused a public ruckus last year after residents on Brockmont Drive said they saw a pack coming in and out of a vacant house.

That same year, a veterinary hospital blamed a coyote for the death of a Maltese dog in Montrose.

The meetings will run from 6 to 8 p.m. The first one is Monday at Sparr Heights Community Center, 1613 Glencoe Way; the second is Tuesday at the Boy Scouts of America’s Verdugo chapter, 1325 Grandview Ave.

Urban Wildlife Specialist Lynsey White Dasher of the Humane Society of the United States will discuss coyote ecology and behavior.
