In January my niece’s Maltese poodle was attacked by a coyoteas her father took the dog out for a potty break in Lake Zurich.
The coyote seems to have been waiting by the garage door and was not intimidated by the man.
Since then, the Chicago Tribune has highlighted the problem for small pet owners.
A coyote was spotted in Johnsburg shortly after the Lake Zurich attack.
When a Maltese poodle escaped from its owner near Pingree Road between Crystal Lake Avenue and Route 14, I feared for the worst.
A family in the Crystal Lake Manor feed it, and the little dog was lucky.
I am happy to report that my niece’s Maltese poodle has recovered from its punctured lung.
