What Doris Starnes thought was an act of vandalism instead was a pack of determined coyotes.
Some type of prey, most likely a rabbit, sought refuge in a drain pipe buried well beneath the ground in Starnes’ front yard.
Not ones to give up easy, the wild canines tore away the ground and destroyed about 80 feet of the drain pipe. The responding sheriff’s deputy said it probably took hours for the persistent pack to do the damage. The fate of the prey is unknown.
