    Did everyone hear about Jessica Simpson's pup being grabbed by a Coyote, right in front of her?:eek: I haven't heard anymore, about it. Her pet was a 5yr. old Maltese/Poodle mix, named Daisey. I could hardly sleep the other night, when I heard about it. I take my Yorkie out here in Seagrove Beach and have walked her along the edge, of the forest! NEVER again, will I go to that area, because Coyotes have been seen, there! I also will make sure to have her, on a leash. She's 10 yrs. old and I would just DIE, if that happened!:sosad:

    Was she in South Walton when her pup was taken? Was the pup on a leash? Coyotes typically don't like coming around people.

    I have no idea where she was, but, doubt she was here. It doesn't seem like Daisey was on a leash, either.

    I can't find an article that says where this happened, but it was certainly nowhere near Sowal (might've been Brazil). Her Twitter post says, "A coyote took my precious Daisy right in front of our eyes. HORROR! We are searching. Hoping. Please help!"

    Coyotes occasionally turn up around Atlanta, too. My feeling is: be careful, but not paranoid.

    Come to think of it, maybe the locals should start a rumor that doggie-snatching coyotes are rampant in Sowal, to keep the tourists from bringing their dogs to the beach! :clap:

    They've been killing cats in these parts for years, and occasionally small dogs as well. It's the biggest reason why my cats are indoor only.

    ...and this morning, the buzzards were eating a coyote on the side of Hwy 98, just west of 395.

    I hate that they were working on the quail. Keeping the cats thinned out, not such a big deal. The turkeys are coming back strong though, I guess they do not like them or they are too big.

    Oh, that's what that was!

    I saw the buzzards, or at least I thought, that was buzzards.:dunno: How do you know it was a Coyote, did you get out of your car? Wonder what happened, to it?
