A suspected coyote attack has left a dog dead and his owners concerned for the safety of pets and people in their neighborhood.
... The lapdog-size Romeo was outside his family's home on Bywater Lane around 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Leib said.
...An animal attack like this usually means that the animal is protecting a food source, Czaja said, remembering information the DNR has given the community in the past.
He warns residents not to feed their pets outside.Neighbors have reported seeing a pack of two or three coyotes in the neighborhood in the past months, Leib said. One neighbor recently spotted a coyote in a yard during the daytime.
About 40 grains of HSL (~800 fps) will do the trick, Ms. Leib.
