“We’re on the prowl for coyotes,” the 44-year-old said during an Instagram Live video from her LA home.
“Because coyotes got into our yard and dragged out … well, attacked one of our dogs, only four bites, but dragged one of them into a neighbour’s year and almost killed him.”
Speaking to People, the mum-of five elaborated, explaining that puppy Musso excaped with just four bite wounds, however her other dog, Ferris was not so lucky.
“[Our neighbour’s] wife was inside and heard coyotes attacking a small dog who was screaming. She screamed to her husband who was just getting in his car to go to work to help. He grabbed a broom and ran full force up the hill chasing the coyotes away,” Spelling said. The coyotes — who were “shaking Ferris like a rag doll,” dropped him, but he was bleeding from his neck and couldn’t walk.
Luckily, the neighbour – who didn’t realise the dog belonged to Tori, whisked him to the vet where he was given emergency surgery.
“Literally we went to the hospital to say goodbye and he pulled through and Ferris, we hope, is coming home today,” the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum added on Instagram. “If they hadn’t acted so quickly, Ferris, who I have had for 15 years, would be dead. He’s a little miracle. No one at the vet can believe how truly lucky he is.
“A coyote was spotted this morning,” Spelling continued, “But my husband, he’s such a guy, they have that hunter/masculine thing invested in their soul, he was on the lookout for him. I was like, ‘What are you going to do, throw a pebble at him?’
