Coyotes are one of the most adapted species to most residential settings in neighborhoods thru the Atlanta area. They are thought to be only out in the wild, but they are commonly found in neighborhoods, and even urban areas. Coyote can pose a danger to livestock and pets, and even take up refuge under or around your home.
They are opportunistic feeders and can eat nearly anything. They will feed on pets, livestock, deer, road kill, insects, garbage, pet food, and even vegetation. In residential areas they have mostly lost their fear of humans. If you suspect Coyote activity in your area, be cautious about letting small pets outside unattended, even with a fenced yard.

The major contributing factor to the rise in coyote numbers in residential areas is encroachment. As we develop land coyotes once occupied, they have nowhere to go. This has led to problems in most neighborhoods all over the U.S. which gets worse yearly. Some cities are contracting private contractors for controlling coyotes. Short of the seasonal hunting of coyotes or the occasional coyote hit by a car, the numbers will never be controlled unless action is taken.
Coyotes are excellent at digging, and can even find ways to get over a fence. Periodically checking the area can reduce any such chances. Skirting added to the existing fence can take away any chance of coyotes digging under your fence. Also ensure there are no branches or limbs hanging over your fence and that all fencing is secured.
Coyotes can harbor a number of diseases and ectoparasites that can be spread to people and pets. Diseases Coyotes can have include Rabies, Tularemia, Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvo Virus, and Mange. Ectoparasites include mites, fleas, worms, and ticks. It is best to avoid contact with a dead coyote, live coyote, den area, or where one has been. You should also keep pets away from those areas as well, as many diseases mentioned are a greater risk to pets than people.
