"There she was lying next to the step that would have let her in," Leah said. "She tried to get up and I noticed her leg was broken and twisted. She was all bloody. It was devastating. I walked her toward the back door, in the backyard and she started screaming, like she was terrified to go back there."
Shayna's injuries were so bad, she had to be put to sleep.
"She didn't deserve to suffer," Leah said. "She was my constant companion for 14 years. In all that time, I never worried or thought something like this could happen. Now, I'm worried it could happen to others."
Laeh's never seen a coyote on her property. But just a few blocks away, Madelyn Iannacone is trying to figure out how to move a whole family of them.
"There are two adult coyotes and four pups," Madelyn says. "I see them every day."
Those coyotes are living in brush and drainage pipes on the outskirts of Madelyn's backyard. It makes her nervous for her own pets and children in the area.
