Dog Lost in Coyote Attack

KSAL StaffJuly 2, 2016

A Wichita woman says she and her dog were out for a morning run when a coyote grabbed the dog and carried it away in its jaws.

Shelley Duncan said that she was running near the Tallgrass Golf Course last week with her dog Gwenny, an Italian greyhound, a few feet behind her when the coyote attacked the dog.

The coyote ran off into a brushy area with the dog in its mouth before Duncan could do anything. Duncan says two men helped her look for the dog but couldn’t find it.

Charlie Cope, with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, says he gets up to 15 reports a year of coyotes in Wichita, but this was the first he’d heard of one attacking a dog.
