A second dog was attacked by a coyote on Sunday night. The coyote grabbed the small dog by the neck and tried to drag him across the street. The owner ran at the coyote, scaring him off. The coyote released the pet.
The incident happened on the 500 block of Muirfield Road. The dog has a small neck gash, but the owner reports that he will be fine. They also wanted to let people know that the coyote is quite large/tall.
The Los Angeles Animal Services Wildlife Program posted the following on Facebook Monday night:
Residents of Hancock Park and neighboring communities within Zip Codes: 90004, 90005, 90010, 90020, 90036 are recommended to exercise close monitoring of their pets in relation to recent coyote activity. Walk dogs on leash even on your property if the yard has no fence, keep cats indoors and remove attraction sources.
