So you think your yard is safe? Think again. We had no idea we would lose our beloved pet Saturday morning Oct. 1. At 3 am we let our small seven-pound terrier out in our well-lit front yard. Our dog would never leave the yard, not even to chase a ball across the street. We never imagined that three minutes after letting her out, she would be taken from us in the jaws of a wolf. Imagine that, in our front yard.
We ran to rescue her, but the wolf was faster than we were. It took her to the end of the street and into the bushes. When we searched the next day and all we could find were large wolf tracks.
While searching, we were approached by a lady who lives nearby. She lost her 14-pound poodle the same way a few nights previous. We were also
made aware that two cats have gone missing recently.
The reason for this letter is to let others know that their yard is not a safe haven. If a wolf can carry a dog away, what could it do to a child?
