In Wichita, Kansas, the unthinkable happened to the Nicks’ family dog this week. On Tuesday morning, the Chihuahua named Ciary, went outside for her potty break when she was fatally attacked by a hawk.
According to KakeNews, the tragic events unfolded quickly.
“There was a trail of blood leading into the house. She ran to her bed. My fiance looked at her and said oh my god. She had been split open,” stated Rodney Nicks.
They rushed Ciary to the veterinarian, but it was too late. Her injuries were fatal. Talon marks on the dog indicated she had been plucked up into the air, but some how managed to escape and fallen to the ground.
It is believed recent flooding have caused the hawks and other birds of prey to search for food inland. Ciary was so small she looked like a rabbit – most likely why the hawk attacked.
Another warning for pet owners – don’t leave your dogs outside by themselves.
