A dog in Magnolia, Texas is being looked at as a furry hero after saving another dog from a coyote attack. A pack of urban coyotes surrounded the neighbor dog in the middle of the night. The dog ran into the neighbor’s yard trying to get away from the wild animals and that is when the other 116-pound dog came to her rescue. The owners state that the dogs have been pals for awhile and this only deepened their bond.

The Environmental Protection Agency has approved the use in five states of coyote-killing M-44 devices, also called “cyanide bombs,” after temporarily halting their use in August. The EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs announced safety improvements in the devices approved for use by U.S. Department of Agriculture wildlife agents to kill livestock predators in South Dakota, Texas, Montana, Wyoming and New Mexico.
