This story is similar. It is about how people who move to suburban areas are shocked to discover how wild animals are different from their pets. In fact they often see their pets as food.
The "shocked neighbor" in this story was surprised that a coyote could jump a five foot fence.
Live long enough in the country and you're going to lose a cat or three to owls and coyotes, maybe even a rattlesnake or a neighbor with a .22 standing guard over a bird feeder.It gets better from here.
We have gray foxes out here (I saw one just last week, right by the house) and I'm sure even they could gang up on a cat and kill it.
That's life. Unpleasant as it is, it's just life.
But it's real life. And despite all our suburban dreams of some kind of neo-pastoral bliss shared among all God's creatures — coyotes, bobcats, foxes, diamondbacks and black widows don't think that way.
