argylesock says… Here’s some expert opinion about shooting wild animals in the United States.
In today’s blog post we are privileged to receive an expert perspective of hunting/wildlife management in the United States by Dr. Paul Curtis, Department Extension Leader and Associate Professor in the Department of Natural Resources at Cornell University based in Ithaca, NY. For the past 23 years he has been organizing the Wildlife Damage Management Program to reduce human-wildlife conflicts in agricultural and suburban landscapes. Dr. Curtis works both on a local level, national, and even international level to integrate community-based wildlife management issues and public policy education. His past research has included studies of urban coyote ecology, black bear behavior, nesting and foraging behavior of colonial waterbirds, and new methods for reducing tick abundance and associate Lyme disease. He has written numerous journal articles and extension publications concerning wildlife ecology, behavior, and methods to reduce human-wildlife conflicts. Dr. Curtis is a Certified Wildlife Biologist with The Wildlife Society.
