Coyote Attacked my Cat in Cliffside, Scarborough
I came home from a bicycle ride at 9 pm June 12, 2010 and spotted a neighbourhood cat and a coyote next door on the front lawn. I startled them both and the cat ran away but the coyote proceeded to my front porch where my cat Brutus was tied on a leash.
I dropped my bike and ran after the coyote who had made a bee line to my cat. A bush blocked my view but I heard my cat scream and thankfully the coyote continued north to my adjacent neighbour's property. I continued chasing the animal for another block and then on the way home knocked on the doors of a couple of cat owners to warn them to bring/leave their cats indoors. Brutus is unharmed and very lucky.
I live a 15 minute walk north of the Scarborough Bluffs and now I'm afraid to leave my cat out on a leash, even by my front door without keeping a constant watchful eye. Brutus is one lucky cat!
