A coyote was chasing them, attacking her dog, Macy.
Lily got terrified by seeing the coyotte chasing her and dropped Macy’s leash. But Macy did not run away – instead the york turned and gave a brave fight with the coyotte. Depsite the injuries he had to sustain, he managed toc hase off the coyote from his owner.
Dorothy Kwan, Lili’s mother was surprised seeing a wild animal in the urban area during daytime.
“I would never guess that a coyote, you know, would come out during the day, and especially with someone screaming and yelling it still was not fazed; it just kept coming after her and our dog, you know, despite all the yelling,” Dorothy said. “It was quite aggressive.”
Dorothy Kwan said she is frustrated no one will trap them, but feels lucky Macy survived and protected her daughter.
“She’s our little hero,” she said.
