Coyotes kill Calgary Dachshund

We don’t mean to be a downer with this story, but rather to call your attention to the threat of coyotes. The Calgary Sun reports:

Quinn Kliewer, 21, and a friend were biking near the 14 St. parking lot at Nose Hill Park with five dogs — two dachshunds, a border collie pup, German shepherd pup and a plott hound — following behind when the coyotes suddenly attacked about 1 p.m.

“We were biking through the trees and one of the wiener dogs that was at the end of the line, I couldn’t see him then I could hear him screaming,” said Kliewer.

“I went back to see what happened to him and he was gone.

Here’s some of the Daily Dachshund‘s past coyote coverage, but be aware that it’s not for the faint hearted.
