My Golden Retriever, Samantha was sitting on the deck around 5 o'clock PM tonight. It was still light out, so I didn't worry. Suddenly she bolted off the deck. I quickly ran out because we have Coyotes in our area. Sure enough she had challenged our electric fence and was deep into the woods chasing the Coyote.
Finally, she listened and let the Coyote run out of sight into the woods. I called her back inside and gave her a hug. I was so upset at the thought of what might have happened. She is the sweetest dog. I have never seen her run that far into the woods, nor chase an animal that large. Thank God I didn't have my little Cocoa outside with her.
In recent years Coyotes have attacked dogs, cats and even some people. Recently in Chicago a pack of Coyotes tried to break a door in chasing the family pet home.
P.S. I hate Coyotes!
Today I am linking to Mosaic Monday over a Mary's Little Red House.
