Please Be Very Careful Walking Your Dog In Or Around The Empty Lot Behind The Village Hall. Also Be Careful By The Ponds. My Dog Has Been Attacked But Was OK. It Doesn't matter Day Or Night. Just A Few Weeks Ago I Was There Walking My Dog at 8:30 in the Morning And Out Popped A Coyote Running Across The Field. It The Amount Of Geese And Ducks Still In The Area The Coyote's Are Out And About.

I had one last yr outside my patio door growling at me though the glass as he tore through a grocery bag of trash accidently left on the back deck. It was viscous sounding. We're off n. Adams.

I think attach is better. He didn't attack, he did what he always did before we built houses on his home. He attached himself to his dinner.

Did you get the point of the story obviously I was very upset and wanted to warn people as this little dog was my daughters I have been with him since he was born. And he is defenseless against such a trauma. who made any of you the spelling Nazis. By the way he only weights 8 lbs. and he is 13 years old a wonderful little guy. I would say keep your intelligence to your self. and learn some empathy for others. He has stitches on his back where the coyotes ripped at him, and broken ribs

Was he on a leash? Coyotes usually don't attach themselves to small dogs when humans are around.

There was a pack of them behind East View Elementary School on Monday Night. It was dusk out and they were on to something. Don't throw your dogs out on a leash and think they'll be okay, they won't. Hope the little guy recovers and is doing better. How terribly horrible for the family. People also need to watch their kids!!

It's hunting season, so they will venture closer to houses while the hunters are hanging out in the fields where the coyotes usually hang out. Also, keep in mind that hawks and owls will take small pets as well.

It's heartbreaking when a pet is attacked and hurt. I feel for anyone that has suffered from this type of situation. With that said...Keep in mind that Coyotes are about the size of a small German Shepard and weighs about 40 pounds or less depending on the season. They are everywhere and everyone should keep their pets close by them and on a leash especially at dusk to dawn. I have a very large dog (130-160lbs) that is all muscle and would kill a Coyote or two with no problem. I still would not have him free and away from me. It's all animal instinct and natural for them. Coyotes don't like humans or anything bigger than them by nature and will seek easier pray like rabbits, geese, mice, small dogs and cats. As far as the Hawk and Owls...I actually know someone who had their little Palmeranian attacked and picked up by a hawk. It survived but I did chuckle a bit on that story as she told it. I guess that is one reason why I like larger dogs. I'll never have to worry about a darn bird flying away with him. LOL

I understand the article and sympathize with the dog owner. But I do wish some of these articles had better writing and editing. This is just sloppy. Coyotes have fewer places to go with all of the new homes and construction in what was their home turf. We have to be careful with small pets and also the leash law.
