I think the most frightening thing about that photo is the smile on the poor cat
Let me see here.. Tajunga? Small Dog?
What time of year was this? Was this a male dog?FACT:
Coyote have a trick for ordering fast food... females in the pack who are in heat stroll along the streets where personal pets reside, attracting the males to join her up in the woods for some fun and frolic... unfortunately Snoopy ends up meeting up with several hungry friends of his new girl-friend
Most everyone that has lived in the U.S. Southwest for more than a year has been warned of this fact and yet every year we have reports from all the Yuppie types who's little foo-foo puppies get eaten by the big bad coyotes in the neighborhood. Then again, local kitty cats have proven a snack more than a few times as well. Needless to say, a dog's odds of survival in such communities become even lower should a Chinese or Vietnamese restaurant be within two miles of your residence
Oh! And if you live the U.S. south (gulf coast) region, the coyotes are still around but its the Gators and now days, the myriad of constrictor type snakes (that were released by ignorant owners that thought them "pets") now populating the region. But then, I've seen some great Creole recopies for dog...
