A Louisiana man shared gruesome video of a coyote lurking through his front yard and hunting down his cat as the poor animal tried to hide. In the surveillance video, the coyote is seen roaming through the front yard of Scott Waters’ Old Jefferson home looking for his cat.
The cat tried to get away from the coyote by hiding behind the tire of a vehicle parked in the driveway. In the video the coyote walks up to the car and snatches the cat away as the animal yelps. The coyote then takes off down the street with the cat in its mouth. The horrific death comes one month after Old Metairie resident Dianne Vinci said she found her cat’s body parts in her yard after a coyote mauled it to death.
‘It was torn apart. It was eaten. It was literally ripped apart. A leg and a shoulder were in my yard. And the head was found a block away,’ she told WDSU, adding that two dogs in the neighborhood were also mauled by a coyote. In surveillance video taken outside Vinci’s home, the coyote picks her cat up and drops it on the round. The coyote then picks it up again and walks off. ‘I just cannot believe that horrible death the cat faced, being ripped apart, and it was blind in one eye,’ she said. ‘They ate the rest of the body. They left one leg here and now I’m frightened to death for the other cats and any animals in this neighborhood.’
Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office issued a warning to residents about the dangers of coyotes to pets. Officials said pet owners should keep dogs and cats indoors, especially at dawn and dusk, and bring pet food indoors. If a dog is left outside at night, officials advise keeping them in a fully enclosed kennel.
