Has anyone contacted the DNR or their county and had any luck? When I first came back to this area I was shocked to see them directly behind my house on some Corps of Engineers property. (I already knew about a den of red foxes from my renter). I mentioned this to my vet and they gave me a DNR number and some other number with my county. I called and received several layers of "run around" answers. If anyone has contacts or numbers that will product some results I'll be happy to call.

I live rural NE GA and they are all around, I've seen them cross 4 lanes of traffic in daylight next to a Kroger, I know they wander all over my area as we are near the Oconee river and there's 1000's of acres of woods and pasture around. I used to have a pony mule that did the trick, she also kept the neighborhood dogs away too. I do have an indoor outdoor cat and she's lived mostly outdoors here for over 10 years...one smart cookie.

I do know my neighbors shoot any that they see and I told them have at it. They have eaten all the Foxes and Wild Turkey in the area.

I saw signs along the Greenway in both No. Fulton and Gwinnett that coyote trapping was in progress in November. I haven't heard of any attacks, so I'm not sure what prompted the trapping.

I love to hear them at night. They seem to be all around us, yet I have never seen one.

Did the signs indicate an agency that is responsible for the trapping?

I believe they did, but I don't remember who put them up. The gist of the warning was to pet owners to keep their dogs on a leash because of the traps.
Haven't been on the trails in a while, as it's always raining when I have time to go.

Funny thing, I live in Jamaica, Queens, NYC in a high-rise apartment complex and we have a coyote roaming in our parking lot. I spotted it about 6 months ago and none of my friends believed me. Last month it was in the newspaper and the local (TV) news. Really bizarre

When we have some good weather and if you think about will you please let me know what agency is responsible for the trapping? Thanks and Happy New Year.

I have heard about coyote problems and fortunatley there aren't any in my neighborhood in Dunwoody. My only advice would be to call a trapper or move if you're really scared.
