I have spent lots of time in this town and I don't live to far. There is forest preserves everywhere and this does not surprise me.

Lucky owner! I hope they take measures to insure their dogs safety. Sounds like the need a fence or if they have one, check it for holes.

A coyote can jump a 5 ft fence with no problems(I've seen this)..6 foot maybe a little harder but very likely. 6 ft would be the limit in this town. Other then coyote rollers, the only thing to do is supervise the dog all the time and even then its a risk

We have 6 ft in the back yard and it stops everything but raccoons! The coyotes at work will usually dig rather than jump (6' chain link), but I wouldn't put it past them to try if they wanted something bad enough.

Oh I believe this. A girl in my office lives in Riverside and they see coyotes and deer all the time.

Just put up a 6 ft. fence too....very scary...
