A Florida man saved his dog’s life using a coffee cup. Ben Pool and his dog live in Fruitland Park near Lake County, Florida.
Packs of coyotes often roam in Pool’s neighborhood and recently, Pool’s dog attacked by a coyote.
The pool was outside with his canine when a coyote attacked his dog.
“My dog and a coyote were standing face to face, fixing to go at it,” Pool told WESH.
Pool didn’t have any weapon but he had a coffee cup in his hand at the time.
“He came at my legs, first, I smashed him in the side of the head with the cup. He came at me again, I smashed him again and then he jumped up at my face, when he did that I jumped back, smacked him in the side of the head, he screamed and he went down,” Pool said.
“It was extremely aggressive, it did not respond to anything I had ever heard, like making noise. The more I did that, the madder it got and the more it came at me,” he added.
Pool then got into his truck with a gun to scare the animal.
“I was going to shoot it out the window because I didn’t want to get out and fight it again, and when I did, it jumped up at the window of the truck. I rolled the window down, backed up, went three or four times at it and finally, ran it over. No regrets. I’d do it again in a heartbeat,” Pool said.
Eventually, the coyote was killed by Pool but he won’t face any legal repercussions from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for killing the coyote.
