A little terrier remarkably survived this savage attack by a COYOTE prowling around its suburban home.
The cairn terrier named Boozer had only been outside for less than a minute when the coyote appeared and launched its attack.

Harrowing footage has emerged of a tiny defenceless kitten having a concrete block hurled at it in a sickening attack.

After the heartless attack the kitten is left for dead, while a girl off camera can be heard saying "put it on the concrete or else it won't f****** die".
The footage is believed to have been filmed in Invercargill, on the South Island, New Zealand, and has already been shared almost 250,000 times.

Animal rights groups have now called for those responsible for the sickening attack to be publicly named and shamed.
Paw Justice wrote on Facebook: "We made the very hard call to post an horrific video of a kitten being stoned to death. We did that because we know sometimes the hardest truths are the only ones that get results.
"You cannot un-see what you have seen, and we cannot undo what has been done to that little kitten. Animal abuse is an ugly, messy reality and we believe the fight must be made public."
Furious viewers responded to the footage being shared on social media.
Ainslie Jalfron said: "This is where the law must upheld to the fullest extent to denounce and deter this despicable behaviour. And these kids need a serious intervention along with their punishment."
Helen Anderson added: "As the offenders of this horrific act of cruelty are all underage, their parents should be held accountable for their actions and prosecuted."
And Karina O'Brien said: "RIP little kitty my heart is heavy with sorrow for an innocence life so violently taken. I hope justice is served and these cruel vile beings are punished properly."

The owner of the dog, Joe Nathan Goodwin filmed the incident. The video shows that simply because Goodwin refused to cut off his dog’s head that he was assaulted by a police officer and thrown down on the hood of his truck.
Imagine for a moment, police officers coming on to your property, killing your dog in front of your children, and as you were grieving, they force you to remove its head.
It is important to note that removing the head of an animal is standard procedure for health departments when testing an animal for rabies. However, this is supposed to be done by professionals who know what they are doing—not a dad who just watched his dog get killed.
According to Goodwin, after to officer shot the dog, another officer, Hollis, in the purple shirt, showed up and demanded to see the shot records. Goodwin says that although he thinks the dog was current on his shots, he couldn’t immediately produce them. That’s when things turned south.
Instead of simply waiting for Goodwin to produce the shot records, the officer in the purple shirt—clearly confused on how to handle the situation—began to demand that Goodwin cut off his head so they can test it.
