Coyote attacks Pug
April 1, 2011

This is why you should never let your dog outside unattended, even for a minute.

A lot of people think, "well I have a fenced in yard and I know my dog won't go anywhere so it's ok to let them out off the leash for a minute or two alone."

This is one reason why that is NOT a good idea. I have a fenced in dog enclosure at my house and I still never leave my pugs outside alone for a second because I know that is all it takes for a coyote to jump the fence and attack them.

12 year old Lily was lucky the family cat rescued her!

This incident happened here in northeast, but coyotes are all over the country and increasing their population at a rapid rate..

Hawks have also been known to swoop down and attack small pets.

Just another way in which your kind heart helps animals by passing on this information.
I like the guys idea of an air horn you can get them at a boating store or dept pretty cheap.
That sure was a cute pug, coyote must of had a big mouth as Lily was a bit chunky.
Lily looks a lot like our Lola.

That IS an excellent idea. I think I will get a couple myself to keep around the house - I have seen both bear and coyote (and fox) on my property. All predators sensitive to sound.

The air horn probably works against human predators too.
I have seen them small enough to fit in a pocket

Well that would be a good solution then for those Jehovahs witnesses who came to my door last weekend....maybe I'll try the old air horn on them the next time they come knocking. hahaha
