    Mark Twain said that the Coyote "is so spiritless and cowardly that even when his exposed teeth are pretending a threat the rest of his face is apologizing for it.".

Meet Holly Hadac

Holly Hadac is a Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator through the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, taking in orphaned, injured, and sick wildlife.  She has been rehabilitating since 1996, specializing in large mammals and coyote education.  Holly's goal in speaking about coyotes is to educate the public so that they can make an informed decision about this controversial animal. 

In the past five years Holly has spoken about coyotes to municipalities, school children in Michigan and Indiana, the Michigan Parks and Rec Annual Conference, 4H, Oakland County Parks, has been filmed for local cable channels that broadcast to many communities, nature centers, and more.  She has traveled the northeast and midwest parts of the country to work with coyote biologists, researchers, and other specialists to learn about the coyote and has interviewed coyote biologists all over the country.  Holly is an assistant researcher with the Southeastern Michigan Coyote Research Project (SEMCRP) that is trapping, radio collaring, and tracking coyotes in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb Counties.

Holly's many talks include Power Point presentations on coyotes for adults and school children, wildlife rehabilitation, and nature in general such as what to look for while in the woods.  Holly and the lead researcher for SEMCRP now have a coyote presentation that includes pictures of the coyotes the researchers have trapped and preliminary results from the study such as what local coyotes are eating, habitat use, and where coyote evidence has been found, as well as general education about coyotes.
