NORTH RICHLAND HILLS (CBSDFW.COM) – A homeowner from North Richland Hills is worried that a child could be the next to be attacked by increasingly aggressive coyotes in his neighborhood.

Tom Gensler has been keeping a close eye on his 7-year-old dog since noticing more and more coyotes on the Iron Horse Golf Course. But, last week a door was briefly left open, and Gensler says the small dog was snatched.

Gensler told KRLD, “The thought of your loved pet being killed and then drug away by the neck for dinner is something that I haven’t been able to get over yet.”

Gensler says he’s worried that what happened to his dog could happen to another pet, or worse yet a kid because this didn’t happen in the middle of the night. Gensler says his dog vanished around dusk. The golf course has setout traps and neighbors have been notified to keep a close eye on their pets.
