Colorado Dachshund survives coyote attack

Channel 9 News of Littleton reports:

George’s owner, Colleen Stein, rushed her 10-year-old Dachshund to the hospital on Monday after a coyote grabbed him by the neck in the backyard of their Littleton home.

“I was able to run out and scare the coyote and scoop up George and bring him here,” said Stein.

Like the other dogs brought into Colorado Veterinary Specialists, George sustained injuries to his neck from the attack.

“He had mostly soft tissue damage and a couple fractured vertebrae,” explained Lewis.

George certainly had better luck than this Yorkshire terrier afflicted with the Yorkie curse.
