Suburban Coyotes Gone Wild: Woman wins tug of war over pet poodle, Annie

With two terriers and a beagle recently munched, Chicago-area suburban coyotes seem to have discovered a taste for small-breed domestic dogs. In this latest incident, reported in the Chicago Tribune, a "wild-eyed" coyote had just begun snacking on the hindquarters of a miniature poodle named Annie in a mall parking lot. Seeing this, owner Cissy Lacks grabbed her pet by the front legs, pulled for dear life, and eventually won a harrowing 15-second-long tug of war, as the coyote gave up and sauntered away. Naturally, we at F&S are overjoyed to learn that after a day of recovery, Annie, according to Lacks, is no longer "very, very sad."
