Adding to Another List: They Don’t Do Coyotes, Either

Over the last ten years, either I or people in my immediate circle of family and friends have had reason to call animal control in various Georgia counties about immediate human encounters with possums, raccoons, ferrets, and other animals. In each case, we’ve been told, “We don’t do (animal).”

Now that there are coyotes roaming Buckhead, I can add coyotes to the “we don’t do” list.

Actually, they said they don’t do wild animals. That’s a vague description, as ferrets are normally pets in Georgia, but the one that my friends encountered was absolutely feral—so animal control didn’t want to deal with it.

Does this mean that, since the two feral dogs in the neighborhood that have bitten at least one child are “wild,” it isn’t their problem, either?
