Buckhead residents living off of Rickenbacker Drive and Pinecrest Road have spotted coyotes in their neighborhoods this month.

One of the residents on Pinecrest even snapped this picture of a coyote in their yard.

Coyote sightings in Buckhead happen every so often. Residents who are members of the North Buckhead Civic Association reported sightings in September and October along North Ivy Road and Skyland Drive.

There were more sightings in November. In addition to sightings along Rickenbacker and Pinecrest, residents living along Glengary Drive and Mountain Way also spotted coyotes. Residents are being encouraged to keep small pets inside, even if they have a fenced-in yard.

Coyotes can easily scale a fence, according to a resident quoted in the North Buckhead Civic Association’s email newsletter.
