Last Friday, June 4th at about 6pm (it was daylight) I was playing with Missy Moo, my ten pound black miniature poodle, 18 months old, in my back yard. A coyote scaled the fence and murdered her not ten feet in front of me. It took about 5 seconds for him to kill her and scale the fence again with her. It was lightening fast.
I too climbed the fence and ran after them but am in no way as fast as he/she was. He would stop and wait and look back at me every now and then but I still couldn't catch them. Four golf holes on the golf course later he ran into the woods (across No. 17). I was too afraid to follow. I understand that there have been 5 other attacks in the past month or so… ending in the death of the pet.
Perhaps it’s time to form a committee of neighbors to bring this issue to the attention of the powers that be to get something done about these packs that are running rampant in our community. I am now afraid to go outside at my home.
