Residents of a Galveston County neighborhood have noticed coyotes getting braver, more aggressive and moving into their yards looking for food.
“Yeah, it was like 15 feet away from me, maybe 10 feet away,” said Francine Price.
A coyote came into Price’s yard and snatched her dog while she sat just feet away.
“The coyote picked her up and carried her off right in front of me and she was crying all the way,” she said. “It’s like a member of your family being carried away right in front of you.”
Price isn’t alone. A neighbor down the street has had three cats go missing, too.
“We had that cat for 13 years,” said Don Davis. ”I found a footprint right there in the sand from a coyote.”
