Letter to the Editor: Coyotes Attacked Our Pets

Los Alamos

My friend and I walked my three dogs on the road to the Bayo Canyon sewer plant that starts at the bottom of the Hill road Sunday. We turned around before the steep drop in the canyon to avoid the coyote that I have seen there in the past.

However, at least three coyotes had different plans, following us back toward the truck they attacked two of my dogs. Fortunately for my Jack Russell, she had on a knitted jacket and the coyote did not get a solid grip on her or she would be gone. Lacy has superficial wounds.

My friend and I chased and threw rocks and eventually they faded off into the trees, but I know they were still watching for an opportunity.
