man battered coyote to death with coffee mug and car after it attacked his dog - coffee mug & tumbler
A man killed a coyote who broke his dog with a coffee cup and then knocked it down with his car.
Ben Pool says there are a lot of wild dogs in Fruitland Park, Florida, but he never met
As of last Friday.
While he was walking his dog on a local trail, Pool noticed an aggressive coyote facing his dog, so he used his only weapon-a metal coffee cup for his
"He came at my leg. First of all, I bumped him into one side of the head with a cup.
He came to me again, and I beat him up again, and then he jumped on my face, and when he did, I jumped back and hit him on the head, he went on screaming.
He quickly drove his dog home, but the Coyotes did not relax and followed them to the house.
"It's very radical and it doesn't respond to anything I hear, like making noise.
"The more I do, the more crazy it gets, the more it hits me," he said . ".
The pool went into his truck to get a gun.
When he did, he shook the window down, but the coyote kept jumping up and biting the open window.
"I'm going to shoot it out of the window because I don't want to go out and fight with it and when I shoot it jumps to the window of the truck.
"I shook the window and walked three or four times towards it, and finally I ran over," he said . ".
No regrets, no.
I will do this again in my heartbeat.
"After the incident, Pool often checked his dog for rabies, and his pet seemed to be fine, but he was worried that the problem with coyotes would only get worse.
Everyone will do something here if I get bitten.
"But since I was not bitten, no one will come and do anything," he said . "
