Neighbors in the area of Roosevelt Avenue and Pinehurst Drive woke Monday morning to a woman frantically screaming after a coyote ran off with her family’s small dog, CBS Chicago is reporting. The incident happened around 6:15 a.m.
Pebbles, a 4-year-old, four-pound Yorkie, hasn’t been found, the station says. Pebble’s sister, Paxil, was unharmed.
The owner, who did not want to be identified by name when speaking with ABC7, said he hopes other dog owners take heed and don’t let their pets out without a leash.
Neighbors said they’ve seen coyotes in the area before, ABC7 reports. There were a second coyote with the one who grabbed Pebbles on Monday.
