Gary:
We live on the west side of Danville near Las Trampas Park. Sunday morning a bunch of turkeys gobbling through our yard woke us up about 7 a.m. They were making a lot of noise so my wife let our dog out and we could hear him barking and scattering the turkeys.

He was barking at the bottom of our driveway and I went down and opened the garage door and he came running back inside.

I was going back to bed but I happened to look our bathroom window and I saw this coyote pacing around behind a car at the bottom of our driveway where Willie had been.

There’s been a bit of a flap in the Dublin area since last Thursday when a woman who was out walking her dog OFF LEASH in east Dublin reported the dog was chased by a coyote.

When coyotes attack kids

Marin Headlands, Mar 9, 2008

Thursday an Associated Press story described how a coyote attacked a 2-year-old girl in her front yard in Southern California.

The mother rescued her child and the coyote ran off. It was the third time in five days a coyote has posed a threat to a small child in Southern California. On May 2 another 2-year-old girl was attacked in Alterra Park in Chino Hills, 30 miles east of L. A. And a coyote went after another toddler in the same park on May 4. All three children suffered non life-threatening injuries.
