A Decatur resident whose cat was killed by a coyote is holding a meeting tonight that will include a talk with a professional trapper.
The meeting, organized by resident Christy Bosarge, will be held at the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany, 2089 Ponce de Leon Ave., Decatur, at 7pm, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
From the story:
Bosarge, whose cat was killed by a coyote in a daylight attack at her home on East Parkwood Road last year, told the AJC that the meeting will focus on what efforts should be taken to control the problem and what other communities are doing.
"The state needs to be looking into managing the coyotes," she said. The animals are becoming more aggressive as they lose their fear of humans, she said. "They are starting to take small pets off the leash."
