WESTMINSTER (CBSLA.com) — A family’s dog is recovering after being attacked by coyotes in the family’s back yard.

Momo, a miniature pincher, underwent surgery at the hospital for at least two-dozen bites, located primarily around her stomach.

“She’s still alive, and I feel so lucky,” the dog’s owner, Huong Luu, said.

Deputies believe at least two coyotes attacked the dog after jumping the yard’s fence.

Neighbors, meanwhile, say that coyote attacks are no rare accidents in their neighborhood, suggesting that they come from a field near the school.

“There’s a little farm just about a block away, and they lost all their turkeys and all their hens,” Luu’s neighbor said.

Deputies are reminder pet owners to keep both small pets and pet food indoors.
