Our black lab disappeared about 5 days ago. We may have lost him to coyotes, not sure, we haven't found him yet. The wild rabbits were scarce this year and I know that happens in cycles. I've heard female coyotes will lure male dogs out and then the pack will kill them. I tried to talk hubby in to getting our male fixed for the past 5 years but for some reason he just never got to it. I don't know if anyone else has experienced this but I hope if any of you have been putting off neutering you will take this as a warning. This makes the 3rd male dog we've lost in the 6 years we've lived out here. We've never had that problem with our females.
