i only bring this post up due to the fact there was a slight scare a few weeks back, and it was mentioned on here. looks like the coy dog has found his way into atlanta. they just mentioned on the radio this morning that a few were even spotted downtown, and several local pets have been attacked in the last few days.

So far I haven't actually seen one on our property, but neighbors have seen them. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif Since we've had cool nights, I've been sleeping with open windows, and a few nights ago I definitely heard them. Also, we've been seeing something in a field right after we turn on the highway to go to town. This is during the day, and we can't determine if it's coyotes or perhaps wild dogs. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif

In any case, Miss Priss gets to be shut up at night now. Of course, the dogs sleep in the house at night.....that's where they're supposed to be. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

Sounds as if the population is growing!

In one of the local papers it mentioned that a pack of coyotes was spotted outside a school here in Ct. a few days ago. Then the same day my neighbor was telling me she had one on her deck and a family of foxes have also moved into the neighborhood. Also around the same time my husband said he heard leaves crunching and the girls were barking at whatever it was. What doesn't help is that one of our neighbors raises chickens..... :angryfire:

The part of town we live in is too urban for coyotes, I think, but we still don't let Poe cat out at night. Last night Shiloh began barking her alarm bark about 3 a.m., so I took her out to see what was going on. Never did find anything (thank goodness!) but she was going crazy sniffing under the front porch. And this morning she was arroing behind the garage. I'm sure the neighbors loved that at 6 a.m.! My daughter lives in a more "countrified" town, though, and she has heard of coyotes around her neighborhood. Hasn't seen any though, just turkeys, and various small critters. The other day 2 dear came right up into the yard. Magic was outside, and he made a beeline for her apartment door, all fluffed up and scared! I'd hoped that would scare him enough to want to stay inside, but no such luck.

We had them in our neighborhood about 2 yrs ago. I think this is mating season also so they are more dangerous then ever!

to urban? theyve been spotted in atlanta.
you cant get much more urban that atlanta ga.
they are walking the streets and folks are mistaking them for dogs.
a coy can pick up 50lbs on the run w/o even stopping. i didnt want to alarm anybody, but when i heard on the radio the other morning that packs of coys have moved into downtown atlanta, i figured i would post it up. again only as a warning. theres several tips about how to protect you yard and animals from the coy on the link i posted. plus if ya do a search on the web, theres several links too.
