Audience Comments

  • “Consider various deterrents other than trapping to remove when dealing with nuisance wildlife issues.” — Cedar
  • “Great reminders of knowledge and great new suggestions, thank you low slow soft.” 🙂 — Cindi
  • “Great to have a real expert with real experience discussing the topic. …This presenter OBVIOUSLY had real experience, and his “go slow” approach is SO very applicable in not only animal/wildlife situations but also stressful human interactions. He would make a great presenter in de-escalation, use of force too.” — Daniel
