Nuisance Coyotes on the rise in Coweta County.

Nuisance Coyotes in Coweta

After reading the morning edition of The Newnan Times Herald while drinking my morning coffee I see that the coyote issues in and around Coweta County are on the rise. What really troubles me is that this is the third article in the news paper that I have observed where the home owner has no resolution to their issue due to a lack of knowledge on who to turn to. Every article I have read and every news report seen on our local news outlets seem to end with residents up in arms on how to resolve the issues. So I feel the need to try to shed some light on this ever-increasing issue.

I have a nuisance coyote so I should call Georgia DNR

Many residents of  Coweta County feel that if they have an issue with Coyotes around their home or property that they should contact the Georgia DNR and they will send out a Game Warden to solve the issue. unfortunately this is rarely the case. The Ga DNR Game Wardens are spread pretty thin. One Game Warden will cover up to four counties at a time and spends their day enforcing wildlife and game laws. If they were dispatched to every nuisance wildlife call that their dispatcher received they would be backed up for years. GA DNR can provide you with information on how to modify your property to discourage nuisance issues. However if you call them wanting a Game Warden to fix the issue chances are you will be disappointed. This is simply not their job.

Have you seen that lone Coyote in your yard?

GA DNR could not help so I’ll call Coweta County Animal Control

After you have called GA DNR and felt like you got no where you now call Coweta County Animal Control to plead your case with them. Your met with a very polite voice answering the phone to which you advise them you have coyotes in the area threatening your pets or livestock. You are again disappointed when they tell you that they do not deal with wildlife. You see Animal Control is only licensed to deal with domesticated animals. They primarily deal with domestic dogs and cats only. Occasionally you will see that they are dispatched out to a farm animal that has gone astray. Again if Coweta County Animal Control dispatched an animal warden to every single wildlife call they received in Coweta County the county would be over run with stray dogs and cats and distemper and parvo virus would run rampant in Coweta County. Again this is simply not their job.
