Program Manager of Wildlife Conflict and Wildlife Protection, the Humane Society of the United States
Dave Pauli started his career in animal welfare in 1979, when he founded a humane wildlife conflict resolution business in Madison, Wisconsin (Humane Animal Controls, Inc.). Since then, he’s served as a superintendent of animal control in Billings, Montana, a humane society director in Eastern Washington and a field responder for the Humane Society of the United States for the past 30 years. He has responded to calls in all 50 states and in 20 countries and is an HSUS expert on wild pigs, prairie dogs, beavers, turtles and tortoises, pigeons, lead ammunition, trapping issues and wildlife contraception. He and his daughter saved his adopted rescue cat from a wall ... and named him Wally.
