So my Dh always takes Chloe on an extra long walk in the evening which usually means going to a park about 4 blocks up. It has a nice track to walk around the whole park. Baseball diamonds in the middle and around the perimeter is a skinny section of woods. The far side has a big section of woods. Well, this guy we know always had his dog off leash in the park (not allowed) and now he won't even let the dog in the park. He lives in a house facing the park and saw Dh going there after dusk. He yelled out his door for him to come over so he and Chloe did. He said that there are deer running through like nothing and COYOTES!
Our vet receptionist was in the park with her young golden retriever and out of nowhere a coyote came running towards them and when there's one there's more. Sure enough 3 more came running after them and THEY ATTACKED HER DOG!!! Oh my gosh, I do not know what I would do in that situation! I don't know anymore of the story until I see her again but the guy said the dog needed multiple stitches. This was a very happy go lucky never listen to his mom type of dog and now I guess he doesn't leave her side which is so sad. He's probably terrified to go outside but no more park or long road by the park for us. Chloe loves that park! I'm wondering what anyone else would do if this happened and how they would get the dog out of there? Do you know what you SHOULD do in this situation?
Now my husband just called and asked what happened down the road, didn't I hear flight for life and all the sirens??? No (I woke up an hour later than I wanted to but I think I would have heard.) I guess one block away there was a stabbing!
My neighborhood is pretty quiet with some young, some old, some good, some not so good people in it. He wants me to go up there and see what happened. NOT! The news is on the way who knows if the person is still out there and what the motive would be. I'm real upset they passed the concealed carry law here because of stuff lke this. I guess my point is I'm wishing I lived somewhere else right now. I know these 2 things can happen anywhere and it's nowhere as serious as Jane's alligator situation. I think I will be staying in this morning.
I am so grateful for our 6 foot fence where the gates are always locked.
