Tuesday, she said she walked across Lynnhave Drive to read the yellow notice posted at Emma Millican Park. Turns out, there wasn't a crime at all. But there is a den of coyotes living near the park, according to the notice posted by the cityof Atlanta.

"I read it twice because the first time I didn't believe it," Grant told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "They're probably just as scared of us, but my guard is going to be up."
