A pack of four coyotes smashed a glass door in a Chicago suburb on Friday, when they launched an attack on three dogs in a Riverside yard. Dog- and home-owner Roger Nelson said he used a BB gun to protect his pets and chase off the attaccking canines. Said Nelson, "I hate to use that kind of force, but I'm not going to let my dogs get attacked." BB gun = force? Really? Northwest Herald and Chicago Tribune.
