Coyotes are nothing new in the neighborhood, but they seem to stir up trouble in cycles. Last year around this time, seems they were mutilating lots of cats. Now, a few reports of attacks on cats and small dogs have emerged.
Over in East Dallas, they prompted amusing signage.
L Streets homeowners have reported that early Wednesday morning, a coyote attacked the family dog in the 10200 block of Linkwood. The pet suffered some puncture wounds, but lived through it.
Coyotes, as a rule, don’t attack people, but they do seek small animals, so, you know the drill: keep a close eye on the little guys.
