Penny Smith started after her dogs when she heard them
chasing what she assumed was a rabbit near her Shrewsbury, Vt.,
home. When the animal turned out to be a rabies-crazed coyote,
though, Smith bolted for her truck and sounded the horn for her
husband. Unfortunately, Greg Smith's single shot missed its mark.
The next day, a second attack sent Penny Smith running once again
this time into the house. When Greg Smith came to her rescue this
time, he was passed at the front door first by his wife and then by
the coyote. "[The animal] was right on her heels," he said. "I never
even saw it until it was going by me." Penny Smith escaped out the
back of the house, but the coyote turned on Greg Smith, who put down
the 30-lb. animal with six shots from his handgun. "It was so
sinister. The thing was cool as a cucumber. It had no fear," said
