CADDO PARISH, LA - Residents of one Caddo Parish, Louisiana neighborhood say they're battling an invasion of coyotes.

Last week a dog was mauled and nearly killed by one of the animals.

Dottie McWhiney says they've been lurking in her neighborhood, in her backyard, and even on the golf course across the street.

Her dachshund Dixie barely survived the attack.

Residents in the area think the coyotes are attracted to a nearby wildlife refuge.

They say the coyotes weren't around before the refuge moved in.

well i'm happy to hear that your dog survived. Thank you for commenting.

I live in Lindale and my dachshund just survived being mauled by a coyote in my yard also. My neighbors dog has been attacked twice. We can't poison or put out traps because living in the country there are numerous dogs that roam and might be an unintended victim.
