We are having a lot of trouble in my town with wild coyotes. A couple weeks ago one lured a Weimeraner away by playing with him, and the pack attacked and killed him. They have been killing other smaller pets as well and a black lab was killed by one in a surrounding town to me. I was walking Wolfie this past Monday afternoon. I keep to the main roads and populated areas. I would love to be able to take him through the many hiking trails we have, but I am too afraid of running into coyotes. Much to my surprise, in front of the middle school, stood a coyote! I turned around before Wolfie saw him and went the other way. I did notify the authorities. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to carry in case of an attack? I do carry mace with me.
