In Mobile, Alabama, a family is mourning the death of the their three-month-old Jack Russell and Chihuahua mix puppy from their back patio by a coyote. Multiple pet owners have recently reported their pets missing, and last week small traps near the Yester Oaks neighborhood had been set up. Since then, one coyote has been trapped.
Charles Buford never expected any predatory animal to sneak into his yard, and when he discovered his family’s puppy missing in the morning, was sure someone had stolen the pup. In West Mobile, in an area where most families have their backyards fenced, a coyote managed to sneak into the Buford yard and snatch the family’s puppy named “Spot” from his little bed. A home surveillance video confirmed the attack, and as the coyote ran off, Spot could be seen in the animal’s mouth.
Buford’s young daughter Destinee cried as she told reporters from Fox News how she would play with her puppy the moment she came home.
Rest in peace Spot. Why didn’t your family keep you inside their home at night?
