“Keeping Wildlife Wild”: Coexisting With Javelina and Other Wildlife in Fountain Hills

Wild animals such as javelinas have always been common visitors to the backyards of Fountain Hills’ residents. Recently, a serious, unprovoked javelina attack on a resident put the community and the issue of neighborhood wildlife feeding in the national spotlight. Experts from Arizona Game and Fish will present a public meeting on the dangers of feeding wildlife on Monday, May 23rd at 5:30pm at the Fountain Hills Community Center. Learn how you can stay safe while keeping wildlife wild in Fountain Hills, what actions Game and Fish took in responding to this incident to avoid future attacks, and what you can do to be part of the community’s solution.

Amy Burnett, Information and Education Program Manager for Arizona Game and Fish, will also address the Fountain Hills Town Council in an abbreviated version of this presentation at the next Town Council meeting on Thursday, May 19th at 6:30pm.

For more information about this event, please contact Ms. Burnett at 480-324-3548 or 480-235-5356 (Cell).
