Coyote Control in North Georgia and the Chattanooga, Tennessee Areas

A coyote in the forest in Georgia

Coyotes are medium-sized canines that are common in Georgia.

Coyotes belong to the family Canidae (or Canines), the same family that includes wolves, foxes, and dogs. Their taxonomic name, Canis latrans, literally means "yelping dog;" and the coyote's distinctive cry is becoming a more common sound in the still of the night in Georgia and Tennessee as their numbers continue to increase.

Ranging in size from 35 to 50 pounds, coyotes resemble medium-sized to large dogs. They have pointy snouts, upright ears, and bushy tails. Their coloration ranges from yellowish red to almost black, but most coyotes in Georgia are mottled gray or brownish-gray in color.

Although they tend to avoid humans, coyotes pose a serious risk to domestic animals and livestock. In many parts of the United States coyotes are the number one cause of predator-related death of livestock. They are very capable, efficient, effective hunters who can easily take down animals like chickens and other poultry, rabbits, sheep, and goats. They've even been known to take down cattle on occasion.

Like all wild carnivores, coyotes also are susceptible to rabies. This makes them a threat to livestock and domestic pets because even if a domestic animal avoids being eaten by a coyote, the animal may be exposed to rabies through contact with the coyote's saliva.

Coyote Control

Trapping and removing coyotes and other wild canines is a difficult and dangerous job that shouldn't be attempted by amateurs. They are fiercer than the meanest domestic dogs most people will ever encounter and can literally kill an untrained person.

Lethal coyote-control methods such as shooting usually are ineffective in the long run because being territorial animals, new coyotes will usually move in to replace the ones that were killed. Shooting is an effective way to put down a single coyote that's in the process of attacking a person or livestock, but it's not effective for long-term control.

Our coyote-control services include trapping and removing coyotes, as well as helping homeowners, farmers, and other landowners to protect their property and livestock from coyotes. We can halp make sensitive areas like homes, playgrounds, chicken coops, and livestock pens more "coyote-proof." This is a much more effective way to protect your family, livestock, and property from coyotes.
