Living with Coyotes in Loudoun County

Are you curious about Coyotes?

The nighttime howling of coyotes is now heard in every state in the union except for Hawaii and yes, they live with us here in Loudoun.

Sadly these fascinating and very successful canines are often misunderstood and feared resulting in their being shot, poisoned, and trapped.

Lynsey White Dasher of the Humane Society of the U.S. will share her vast knowledge of coyotes with us and answer your questions so we can live well with coyotes here in Loudoun.

Below are a few of the topics she will cover:

  • The natural history of the coyote
  • Why hunting and trapping have been unsuccessful in controlling their populations
  • How to compassionately coexist with them in our cities, suburbs, and everywhere in between.


Lynsey will also discuss techniques for preventing and solving conflicts with coyotes in Loudoun County, including:

  • tips for protecting pets
  • reducing coyote attractants in yards and neighborhoods
  • hazing bold coyotes to restore the fear of humans back into habituated coyotes.

Lynsey White Dasher is an Urban Wildlife Specialist with the Humane Society of the U.S. who completed research and data analysis for The Cook County Coyote project in Chicago, Illinois, the largest study of urban coyotes in the country.

Join us for this free program, this Tuesday at 7pm at the Rust Library in Leesburg.
