Carlisle, PA - 11 Feb 2005: Coyote Attacks Pet Dog

The owner was waiting for her children to arrive on a school bus and 'Rocco', an 85 pound 'labradoodle', was on a leash. The coyote suddenly ran toward the dog and attacked, inflicting cuts and puncture wounds on Rocco's back legs, still visible in the photo at right.

After the attack, the coyote "just stood there and watched me," said the owner. "It was very scary." She had never seen a coyote in the area before this incident.
