MAN SAVES NEIGHBOR’S DOG FROM COYOTE - "When I ran downstairs, I saw my dog in the coyote’s mouth"
Diamond, a 12-year-old American Eskimo Dog, had a rough day. He was attacked by a coyote while in his yard in Aurora, Illinois. Fortunately, a neighbor heard the screams of Diamond’s owner and drove the coyote away. Read more from CBS Chicago:
This past Tuesday, she heard a yelpfrom her yard.
“When I ran downstairs, I saw my dog in the coyote’s mouth,” Poindexter said…When she screamed, her neighbor came to the rescue. The coyote had dragged the dog into the neighbor’s yard.
“He started throwing his arms at the coyote, and he kind of looked at him, too – ‘Put the dog down,’” Poindexter said. “He had dragged him over, actually pulled the dog over into his yard.”
Diamond lived, but she says he shakes when he goes outside.
Hopefully Diamond recovers from his traumatic experience soon. There are no coyotes in my area but I often hear stories of dogs being attacked in other areas. Please be careful! Click here for the full story.
