Dog killed by coyote pack in Hamilton

Hold on to your dog's leash if you're out for a walk on any of the escarpment's nature trails.

A 25 year old Hamilton pet owner says a coyote pack killed his golden doodle last week, after his dog heard a noise and bolted, causing him to lose his grip on her leash.

The attack happened on the Bruce Trail near Scenic Falls in Hamilton.

Earlier this week, the city put out an advisory warning coyotes are now calling areas around the trails home, and while not aggressive animals they can become territorial when confronted by another animal.
