LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - A Lansing couple says a coyote bit their dog in their own backyard about a week ago in Lansing.
It happened on the 1600 block of South Holly Way, near MLK between Mt. Hope and Holmes Road.
Owner Ron Wardlaw says he let his 45 pound German Shepherd-Terrier mix, Comet, out by himself around midnight. Comet's wounds on his back hind leg are minor, but Wardlaw is concerned the attack could've been worse.
"He got into a posture for a second and the coyote looked and took off back into the woods and by the time I got to my dog, he looked up at me and started whining really, crying, freaked out. He was shaking," said Wardlaw.
"This time of year, coyotes are breeding or getting ready to breed so they're a little bit more territorial and they're going to take issue with any dog in their territories," said Russ Mason, Chief of Wildlife Division for Michigan's DNR. "Suburban areas make great coyote habitat. In fact urban areas make great coyote habitat. There's lots of little animals to eat, there's plenty of garbage to eat, people who leave out food for their pets."
Mason urged animal owners to be aware of surroundings and pay attention to pets while they're outside.
