Although I live in the concrete jungle of DFW we still and have always had a coyote problem but this year seems to be the worst in at least 20 years. Well last night they got ahold of our little terrier mix. They got her 5 seconds after my wife let her out. We heard her screaming and ran out immediately. The yote did release her but the damge was done. We rushed her to animal hospital with multiple puncture wounds. Miraculously none of the puncture wounds pierced through lungs, heart or abdomen. Doc said good thing your son named her Lucky because it is pure luck she survived. she has multiple drain tubes and lacerations to heal from the next few weeks. I was for sure she was not going to make it and my son had to help me through the whole ordeal. It was hard on him he couldn't stop crying but once doc said she is gonna make it he was so happy. This is his first dog and it would have broke my heart if the she was taken from him. He is determined to setup with the coyote call and his 22-250 tonight for some payback. This is a pic of her when we first got her a few years ago.
They have been patterning us as I have spooked them in the back of the house a few weeks ago. Couple pics of her after getting home just now from animal hospital. Multiple puncture wounds, lacerations and a broken rib. She will be ok but needs time and is still in a lot of pain.
