A Coyote took my dog!

I live in south central Pennsylvania. We live in the woods but we are close to the turnpike and town. And on sunday we came home and let our dogs out to go to the bathroom.( a jack russel and a small terrier) Our dogs started barking ( a jack russel and a small terrier).

We went to see what they were barking at just in time to see the coyote run out of the woods grab the terrier and shook him and ran away. My neighbors and family looked for the dog for several hours and never found any sign of him.

My 6 year son was with me and he has been really upset the past couple of days because that dog was his buddy. The dog was 9 years old and slept in our beds at night. We really miss him.

I didn't know this could happen, I just want to pass this on to anybody who lives where there are coyotes.

Im sorry to hear that :( it must be hard to lsoe a family member.

Around here it is VERY common, like, when people in the country buy a dog, they think about coyotes rigth away. A few cougars have also been known to kill dogs, but that's rare. My friends jack russel has been saved from two coyote attacks, the latest one happened last weekend.

Wow, that's frightening. Our little jack doesn't know why she just can't spend the day out side now.

I am so sorry for your loss.


I would guess it was more likely a coydog (coyote mix), as coyotes tend to eat smaller things like mice and such.

or a dogote. Both are a problem because of their lack of fear for humans.

Are there really crosses like this? When I first saw it I wondered what it was, a fox, or stray dog or what. We've seen them here before but they always ran away not towards us.

Will they bother horses? I have a 11 hand pony that is at least 30 years old and he moves kinda stiff legged, Do I need to worry there?

They don't generally bother larger animals, but sometimes coyotes or coydogs will form a pack to bring down an aged or sick critter.

They're like wolves, only smaller. It's not evil, it's just nature.

I do feel badly about your JRT, though. My condolences.
