Coyote kills pet dog in Carmel

April 29, 2011

Carmel homeowners living in the Wexley Chase subdivision are keeping a close eye on their small pets after a coyote attack claimed the life of a dog. A resident in the neighborhood near 126th Street and Towne Road said the coyote snatched her 10-pound  Shih Tzu even though she was only a few feet away. The dog’s remains were found the next day outside West Clay Elementary School. The Department of Natural Resources estimates there are as many as 2,500 coyotes in Hamilton County.
