Lucky Mandy (shown above) was recently rescued from the mouth of a gator. Hooray for human heroes!
If you live in a wildlife-adjacent area known for having predators, always remember to keep your dog on-leash while outside. Dogs are tempting, easy, delicious prey for animals like gators, mountain lions, bears, coyotes, etc. And when a predator attacks a domestic animal, the predator can't really be blamed...she's simply following her instincts. It's up to us humans to make sure our dogs & cats are safe at all times, and this includes making sure we don't put them in vulnerable outdoorsy situations.
