Family pets are disappearing from a neighborhood in Whittier, and residents say coyotes are to blame.

Some locals have reported seeing the attacks along the city’s Greenway Trail.

“I’m very surprised, because I was so sure my dog was safe, because we have a fence all around the house,” said Elodia Haro, whose pet chihuahua was reportedly killed by a coyote.
