Humane Harrassment: Living with Nuisance Wildlife
Tuesday April 25, 2017
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Learn about the animals that are usually considered “nuisance wildlife” and the best ways in which to live in harmony with them. We will discuss methods to get the animals to leave your house or neighborhood on their own accord, without having to resort to trapping or other lethal methods of removal. Using these “Humane Harassment” techniques is often much safer for everyone involved, and include many procedures for avoiding conflict situations with animals!

Presenter: Alexis Fitzgerald is the Manager of Humane and Wildlife Education for the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center (ARL). After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Ecology and Evolution, Alexis has been working in the environmental education field. Alexis started volunteering at the ARL Wildlife Center in 2011 before being hired in the Education Department. She visits schools, libraries and other community organizations to educate individuals about the animals in the world around us.
Both the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center and the Western PA Humane Society have rich histories of caring for animals of all kinds in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas. Since the organizations merged at the beginning of this year, we are able to care for even more animals, domestic and wild. We now have two open door shelters and one wildlife center. The Shelters take in well over 20,000 animals annually with the goal of placing those animals into good homes. We offer adoption services, pet training and even a low cost clinic for the community. Our Wildlife Center cares for native PA wildlife with the goal of releasing healthy animals back into the wild. The Wildlife Center treats over 3,500 animals annually.
