Beloved Mini Killed by Coyotes

Sunny Girl

Moyock, North Carolina – A tiny miniature horse, Sunny Girl, was attacked and killed by what owners believe was a pack of coyotes.  At least 4 coyotes, one of them very large judging by the paw prints, entered the pen and killed the miniature horse and severely injured a large horse.  Precious, the large horse, apparently tried to defend Sunny Girl against the attackers and was injured in her valiant efforts to save her friend’s life.

Karen Williams owns the home where Sunny Girl was attacked, and was boarding the mini for a friend.   After she found the dead mini she called 911, but Animal Control declined to visit the property.

Williams’ grandchildren loved playing and riding Sunny Girl.  4-year-old Haley is pictured hugging the mini the day before Sunny Girl was attacked.  The neighborhood remains watchful, concerned about all the other pets in the area.
