Global News is warning pet owners in Point Grey about aggressive coyotes after a number of small dog snatching this weekend.

A Vancouver man is warning other pet owners after his small dog was snatched by a coyote on Saturday in his Point Grey neighbourhood.

According to Global News, David Gens was walking his five-and-a-half-year-old teacup poodle near West 2nd and Belmont Street around 1:30pm on Saturday when his dog was grabbed.

“I was with a friend walking my dog. My dog was a little ways in front of us. She was in the middle of the street… and a coyote just came out and grabbed her and ran off,” Gens told Global.

The Stanley Park Ecology Society’s coyote sighting map lists several recent coyote sightings in the Jericho Beach area.

Several social media users have also reported aggressive coyote behaviour in the Jericho/UBC area in recent weeks.
