Protecting Laguna’s Small Pets
Two recent coyote attacks have prompted the police department to warn residents to be extra vigilant when letting their cats and dogs outside the home.
Pet owners living on hillside properties are reminded through these attacks that coyotes and other wildlife roam the area, usually during darkness. Small dogs are the most susceptible to being attacked by coyotes because of their size.
Every pet owner is strongly advised to not leave their small dogs or cats unattended, police said in a statement.
