A Ladera Ranch mother recently claimed a coyote lunged at her 10-month-old daughter before killing two neighborhood dogs.

The coyote was spotted around 11:30 a.m. Monday, and began circling the mother and child before showing its teeth and lunging at them, according to the mother.

“It was terrifying, the fact that there’s an animal out there looking at my daughter like she’s prey,” she said.

The coyote then apparently killed two neighborhood dogs.
