ATLANTA,None - The Grant Park Neighborhood Association has issued an alert about two stray dogs that they call "a menace to pets and people."
An alert from the neighborhood group says the canines, a female German shepherd with a limp, and a male Rottweiler mix, killed a flock of chickens in a coop on Grant Street and were seen lurking around other coops earlier this month.
"You don't want the dogs just roaming around," said Kristy Smith, a Grant Park resident who owns not only chickens, but turkeys and goats.
"I have a concern because you wonder if a dog can get in and obviously with goats and chickens and turkeys it would be a prime thing they would go after," she told Channel 2’s Manuel Bojorquez.
Smith has not had an issue with the dogs but with trick-or-treaters filling the streets Monday night, residents want people to keep an eye out for the pair or any aggressive strays.
The alert asks residents to program the phone number for Fulton County Animal Control into their cellphones in case they spot the animals. That number is 404-613-0358.
