Coyote enters Laguna Beach home and snatches pet Chihuahua, owners say

A coyote snatched a small dog from inside a Laguna Beach home Monday night, the dog's owners said. John Fischer, who lives in the 500 block of Oak Street with his wife, said the couple's three Chihuahuas started barking about 7:45 p.m. Fischer, who was in the kitchen, didn't think much of the noise. The dogs were in the bedroom with his week-old granddaughter, and he assumed they were reacting to a visitor they were expecting. But as he left the kitchen, Fischer glimpsed something running out of the bedroom and into the yard. It was a coyote, and it was carrying something. "I could see the white in his mouth," Fischer. "They're very fast. He was gone like a shot." Fischer had enough time to see the animal had seized Eloise, an 8-year-old Chihuahua. "The dog was screaming," he said. "It was awful." Fischer searched for the coyote, hoping he could scared it enough to drop the dog, but he found nothing...more

A little more of those coyotes capturing carne del chihuahua or guts del gato and we're likely to see predator control from drones and helicopters.
