We’ve heard a few times about coyotes roaming around Simcoe county – and how you should keep an eye on your cats and dogs. Well, a couple in California had one of their dogs attacked and killed by a coyote so they decided to do something so that no other animal would have to go through that.
They created an anti-coyote vest!
The CoyoteVest is made of Kevlar. It has plastic spikes around the collar and down the length of the torso. It also has these weird looking long plastic quills shooting up along the center of the dog’s back. All the spikes are just made of plastic so they don’t hurt the coyote, but they will make it difficult and painful for it to bite down on a small dog and run off. That time would give the owner a chance to react. The inventor also says that the vest protects little dogs from bigger dogs.
They are selling the CoyoteVest online – already they’ve sold over 100 of them.
The deluxe model actually comes with a system that will shock the coyote with electricity, forcing him to let go of the dog.
Here’s a video showing the CoyoteVest:
So, would you ever buy one for YOUR dog?
