I have a 5.5' foot vinyl fence and I've seen them come in one side, and go right over the other.
Coyote did it.
Coyotes and bobcats can easily jump a 6' fence.
Wasn't there just a thread on here about a neighbor asking for suggestions about a rural area neighbor's dog attacking him?
Sleeps with the fishes.
True but not true. While true they won't tolerate other canines, especially in areas of their young, they actively hunt and eat dogs too.
Lets hope the genius learned a lesson here.
Off topic a bit: A raccoon was hanging around a few summers ago, getting braver every day. Never bothered my cats, except to eat up all the leftover food. One evening I went out to my work shop where some of my cats live, and the raccoon was sprawled out on one of the cat beds.
If the head was still there and all other bones were gone it was probably a 4legged critter. an owl might carry a 4# chihuahua away and consume at leisure. Regardless it probably would not eat the head. A fox or a pair of foxes could do that dee. Probably couldnt carry the whole dog over the fence. Foxes will work in pairs at times. Makes it easier for them to catch and eat cats. Sounds like whatever was big enough and sturdy enough to separate and eat the bones. Foxes, coyote, bobcat. Sounds like bobcats like take out food, so it narrows down to fox and coyote.
Depending what time the owner was out and about, it would only take a very few minutes for a redatail or even an eagle tto snack on a chihuahua. Crack of dawn is hunting hour.
We have coyotes and at one time, large Owls and even Bald Eagles. The Eagles and a nest in a tree right next to our property.
Never let the Yorkie out alone. Especially @ dawn or dusk.
When I take him for a walk in the evening I always have a heavy walking stick, a bright flashlight and a .38 or a .380.
I'm happy the Eagles have moved on. I would not want to have to kill one defending my dog. From what I understand "saving your dog" is not considered an affirmative defense as far as the US Government is concerned.
SO how did Lassie get away with fighting off a Bald Eagle every 5th or 6th episode?
When I was in the Army at Ft. Bliss for desert warfare training, I was guarding a temporary ammo dump in the middle of the desert all by my lonesome overnight. Coyotes came near the dump and were yelping to each other. I think they were cooperatively hunting something out there (not me). I had a M-16 and a magazine of ammo-BTW.
Stories like this are why I keep my kitters and newest pup indoors. 'Bout a year old lab/dane mix, big SOB but has all the fight of a wet noodle. Mostly wants to slobber all over you and roll on his back to get his tummy scratched. I reckon he'd last maybe 2 seconds against a coyote, maybe not even that. He's stuck downstairs though, wife won't let him upstairs once she realized he was tall enough to grab things off the table without even stretching.....
This reminds me of a friend here in Florida had a beautiful Parrot and he hung the cage from a tree in his yard and in the morning the parrot was gone but the cage was closed and locked. There was only 3 feathers left on the bottom of the cage! He could not understand how the parrot escaped so I had to tell him the Bad News! Very stupid and sad!
My parents had a springer spaniel that would climb right over their chain link fence. I'm guessing the fence was 5.5 ft high. At first the dog would dig under a bit and the push itself through. So I dug trenches along the bottom and stapled landscape timbers. The dog still got out.
So I watched him through a window and he actually climbed right up and over. His paws spread out like fingers. He could hold himself with the claws and up/over he went.
deleted because I was FOS.
I thought the same thing...I bet it was him
My owl has about a 8 foot wingspan.. rabbits are just a snack food.. dog that size easy
Bull. What species of owl has an 8' wingspan?
