Oklahoma woman mistakes coyote for dog, awakes to wild animal in bedroom: ‘He lunged at the door’
Last Updated on
When Bonnie Moriarty heard her cat hiss in the middle of the night, she assumed her dog picked a fight with the feline. Moments later, the cat ran inside her bedroom — with a large animal trailing behind it.
At first, Moriarty assumed her dog was chasing the cat. But as she took a closer look, she realized it wasn’t her pup after all: it was a coyote.
“I woke up and the cat and the coyote (ran) into my room. It was still dark,” Moriarty, of Bixby, Oklahoma,told Fox 23.
Moriarty first heard what she described as a “cat fight” around 4 a.m. She flipped on the lights and located the creature, sitting in the corner of her room. Quickly, Moriarty grabbed a golf club for protection.
“My husband was out of town and my poor kids were upstairs, and I’m screaming,” she described to the news station.
The Bixby cops, equipped with a catcher pole, surrounded the animal and placed the loop around its neck. They managed to pull the creature out of the bedroom and released it safely in a wooded area nearby.
Moriarty believes the coyote, enticed by her cat, managed to get through her back door.
“He … lunged at the door and the door opened,” she said.
