Two scientists from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife visit Jensen Hall at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 12 to answer all the public’s questions about wolves in Lassen County, the state and the nation.
Kent Laudon, a wolf biologist who has visited Lassen County several times, will be joined by Erin Meredith, a CDF&W senior wildlife forensic specialist, who will discuss the genetics of the wolves known to reside in the county and the state.
Some county residents have expressed concerns about wolf-dog hybrids, especially those from the Ravendale area, and Meredith should be able to comment upon those concerns.
The Wednesday, 6 p.m. meeting is free and the public is invited to attend and ask any questions they may have about wolves.
