People are talking about coyotes again.
At 7 p.m. on Jan. 29, the Druid Hills Civic Association will hold a meeting for intown Atlanta communities like Decatur that are affected by these wild canine creatures.
The meeting will be held in the parish hall at the Church of the Epiphany at 2089 Ponce de Leon Ave.
The East Lake Neighborhood Association says that speakers will include:
- Chip Elliott, a coyote trapper who has worked through the metro Atlanta area for over two decades.
- Chris Mowry, head of the biology department at Berry College who has studied coyotes in the southeast and Yellowstone National Park.
- Mary A. Paglieri, a consultant with Little Blue Society in the San Francisco area, which specializes in human-animal conflict resolution.
Coyotes have been an issue throughout the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff area for years, and most experts say there isn't an easy solution to the problem, advising residents mostly to keep their animals indoors at night.
