Brave Yorkie battles coyote to save 10-year-old owner

An incredibly brave little Yorkie defended her owner, a 10-year-old girl, from a coyote that attacked the couple on a neighborhood walk in Toronto this week.

The Yorkshire terrier, which the family rescued six years ago, suffered “extremely severe tissue damage to the spine and leg,” Dorothy Kwan, mother of 10-year-old Lily Kwan, wrote on a page crowdfunding to raise funds for veterinary bills. .

“You can see our dog getting between my daughter and the coyote,” Dorothy Kwan wrote. “Even after being seriously injured, she continued to bark and chase the coyote. She fought back. “The family’s Yorkie had to spend a few nights in intensive care, but was able to go home on Friday after receiving 40 stitches.

“I’m so proud of her. No coyote will want to disturb her when she comes home. My feisty is a real fighter,” Dorothy Kwan wrote on the fundraising page. “You were so brave to fight back and defend your little human. You are our hero.”

The mother told the Toronto Sun that she is frustrated because this coyote is wearing a collar as part of a Ministry of Natural Resources study of coyotes in urban settings.

“I just want to know who to call. Even when a coyote does something aggressive like that, it still refuses to do something,” Kwan told the newspaper. “I’m not saying we get rid of all the coyotes, but this one is out in broad daylight and he’s not afraid of humans.”
