There have been recent sightings of coyotes in Edmonds.
These are desperate times for them seeking a food source
My friend who lives in Edmonds was out in her fenced backyard with her husband and her three dearly loved dachshunds, when suddenly a coyote jumped over the fence and took one of the dogs and jumped back over the fence with the dog and disappeared into the greenbelt.
It all happened lightning fast before they could get to rescue their dog. They are devastated at the loss.
This weather seems to be driving desperate coyotes into our midst. When you are out with your pet, keep it on a leash and stay away from fence lines and near your house entrance.
If you have more than one dog, take them one at a time on a leash and watchfully be prepared to pick the dog up in an instant.
This tragic event that happened to my friend hopefully will not happen again to anyone.
