Roscoe, a 13-year old terrier dog, was just being taken for a walk by his owner in a San Francisco neighborhood when he was suddenly attacked by a pack of four coyotes on the night of December 7, 2021.
The terrier was taken off-leash by his owner, Lyndsay Przybyl, just yards away from their home, when suddenly, out of nowhere, the coyotes emerged from in between cars near a street intersection. When Roscoe tried to chase the coyotes, one of them was able to grab him by the neck and was taken away.
Przybyl’s boyfriend, Tim, who was walking with her, chased after the wild dogs, and eventually, Roscoe was dropped, and the pack ran away.
The incident left Przybyl shaken and said she normally let Roscoe loose when they are nearing their house, saying, “Let me tell you, I will never do that again.”
