Is there anyone out there who has had a wild animal come in contact with your pet?

I just want to make everyone aware that animals in the wild, can, & will, attack & or eat your little furry friends. I had a friend, who's 5 lb Yorkie had a very close call by a hawk swooping down to grab the dog. I have also heard of coyote's killing dogs, in town. Please don't leave your tiny babies unattended. Thanks for reading.

UPDATE: Maybe all of you could pass the awareness onto your Zootoo, facebook &twitter friends & if they do the same....we have done our part! Thank you & have a great day!

in our area, the most common "wildlife" you see around neighborhoods are raccoons and possums...sometimes hawks. but not so long ago there were news reports about coyotes in our "City Park" area, plus, with my own eyes, i've seen a fox in a nice, well-established subdivision in the big middle of Baton Rouge. i actually stopped the car and went back to make sure i wasn't seeing things, and the guy who was riding with me saw it too, so i know i'm not imagining things. but it's true, we tend to think of "wildlife" as being something completely apart from our everyday lives, and that isn't always the case. my parents used to have a lot of hawks around their house, and when my dog was a puppy, we watched her *very* closely whenever she was outside.

I had a groundhog come up to the doorwall off my deck. My guinea pigs are in that room. Groundhogs have sharp claws and teeth so I'm glad the glass door was shut because it could have clawed its way in. It scared all of us.
