Grieving Owner Warns Of Predators

What Dale Morris had feared about his missing dog for the past four months was confirmed this week. The collar, leash and tags of Charlie, a 6-year-old Chinese Crested Powderpuff dog, were found by a friend of Morris on Monday about a quarter of a mile from where the pooch was last seen on the north side of Post Falls in October.  Morris said Charlie's collar had been chewed up and he was presumably the victim of a coyote attack, based on neighbors' reports of hearing and seeing coyotes off Guy Road on the edge of the city. "The mystery has been solved," said Morris, fighting back tears. "I've always hoped that somebody would find him." Morris wants his case to be an alert for other owners to watch out for their animals and predators/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
