Police: Coyote snatched Illinois woman’s pet dog

GLENVIEW – A Glenview pet owner says her dog was snatched by coyote.

Glenview Police Sergeant David Sostak tells the Chicago Sun-Times that officers responded to a woman Monday who claimed her Yorkshire terrier had been taken by a coyote. The coyote attack happened around 6:30 a.m. Monday.

Neighbors say the woman had let the dog out in the backyard.

Glenview resident Karl Hanson reports seeing the coyote run by with the dog in its mouth.

While experts say coyote attacks on people are rare, authorities have said coyotes are more visible now as food becomes scarcer and young coyotes leave their families.
