Is Brookhaven the next city in metro Atlanta to have a coyote problem?
A reader told Patch that a pair of coyotes were spotted on Jan. 17 in the Murphey Candler area, on W. Nancy Creek near a condominium complex.
Our neighboring city of Decatur has been hosting community meetings on the critters for some time now. The last flurry of complaints came in late 2011 after a resident of the East Parkwood Road neighborhood saw a coyote snatch her cat off the front porch.
In fact, 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.
