This chocolate lab is enjoying a bone in his backyard. He has no idea what is lurking behind him.
A combination of urban and suburban sprawl and the adaptability of coyotes is making situations like this one more common than ever.
Watch the video to see what happens.
Obviously, the chocolate lab in the video was never in real danger, but smaller dogs, cats, and even small children are sometimes killed by coyotes.
Some municipalities have gone as far as hiring sharpshooters to remove coyotes, but this solution is temporary and coyotes soon repopulate these areas.
