SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Neighbors in College Area are a little more vigilant after a coyote attacking a chicken was caught on camera.

Matt Dixon was grilling in his backyard when he heard squawking on the neighboring hillside.

“One of the chicken flies into the fence,” said Dixon describing the video he took. “That’s when the coyote popped out of the clearing it there and made its way up
and he eventually found what he was after.”

Dixon posted the 28-second video online and found that people were quicker to forgive the coyote.

“I got a lot of flak for not trying to help save the neighbor’s chicken and I can understand that,” said Dixon, “but it all happened so fast.”

Other neighbors say they are more cautious with their children and pets outside knowing there can be coyotes in an urban area.
