Erin Yasgar of Silver Lake said that two dogs have recently been killed by a pack of coyotes that are believed to live on a ridge between Occidental Boulevard and Angelus street north of Sunset Boulevard. One dog was killed Thursday and another last week. A third dog was attacked but survived. The “tough little pug got away,” said Yasgar. “That’s what we know of on our block.” Yasgar and other neighbors suspect the coyotes are living in some overgrown backyards and are asking for help in getting them cleared:
There are 3 houses with no tenants – 2 on Angelus, one on Occidental. They have overgrown yards – and not all people on Angelus take care of the bottom of their backyards since it’s not part of their usable yard – with all the rain it’s a jungle back there … One neighbor is calling [Councilman Eric Garcetti’s office] and one other is going to Fire Dept. about the brush.
Yasgar said she has noticed “tons of missing dog signs” posted at corner of Silver Lake Boulevard and Reservoir Street.
