Coyotes will eat your pets and are in Georgia to stay.
That is probably not the message more than a hundred people who showed up at an information session in one neighborhood wanted to hear Monday night.
But an animal trapper said that last month he caught eight coyotes near Ponce de Leon and the Decatur city limits.
Some people at the meeting urged others not to kill coyotes. "What you want to do is step up and confront the coyote. They are scared of you, so if they see a challenge and don't see you backing down, they read your body language and will take off," said Jessica McKee, a coyote advocate.
