WdIV: Woman scares off coyote that has dog by the neck
A Canton woman scared off a coyote that had her dog in its mouth and was trying to drag the pooch into the woods Friday.
According to Click On Detroit, the woman’s 8-year-old West Highland Terrier was attacked by a coyote around 5:30 a.m. near Ridge and Cherry Hill roads, just outside Washtenaw County.
The report said the woman heard Duncan, her terrier, howling and she ran outside toward the coyote and started shrieking until it released her dog. The coyote had Duncan by the neck and was dragging it toward a nearby wooded area, Click On Detroit reported.
Duncan was treated at a local animal hospital and is expected to recover fully.
