It happens, it happens like this: you go to sleep peacefully, and then you realize that something not quite ordinary is happening in the house. And sometimes you can even catch uninvited guests. Sandy Ferguson lives in a private house in the U.S. state of South Carolina. Sandy recently turned 85 years old, she has been retired for a long time. The woman lives alone, except for two beloved dogs. Sandy is generally a big fan of dogs, she has statuettes and paintings of these animals hanging all over the house. But despite the fact that the woman loves dogs very much and considers herself an expert on them, one day she did not immediately manage to understand who was in front of her.

This incident happened late at night. Sandy was already asleep at that time, and through a dream she heard her dog barking loudly in the kitchen. Of course, she got up and went to check what was causing the commotion at such a late hour. Looking into the kitchen, an elderly woman saw that two dogs were sitting on the floor in the middle of the room, opposite each other. At first, she thought that both of her pets were looking for food in the kitchen in the middle of the night and, having not shared something, made a fuss. But when the pensioner finally managed to find her glasses, she realized that this version was deeply erroneous. Yes, there really was one of her dogs sitting in front of Sandy. But who was the other animal that was running the kitchen in the middle of the night?

It turned out it was a wild coyote – it was his elderly woman who at first took for her beloved pet dog. It is not surprising that Sandy did not immediately understand who was in front of her, because coyotes look very similar to dogs. Moreover, the woman had never seen wild coyotes, although at night she often heard the voices of these frolicking animals. Coyotes are one of the few animals that survive in urbanized areas and adapt to life among civilization. When the first shock passed, Sandy Ferguson called the police and asked for urgent help. Then the pensioner told about this unexpected meeting: “The coyote stood without the slightest movement and did not make any sounds – did not whine, did not growl, did not bark.

He was as scared as I was and just froze in place. During the whole time that I was waiting for the police to arrive, he stood motionless in the corner.” The police officers who arrived on Ferguson’s call tried to get the fanged night guest out of the house as soon as possible. To do this, they successfully used a special kind of “weapon– – a toy for dogs. As soon as the police lured the coyote outside, he immediately disappeared into the night darkness. Surely, the wild animal was happy that he managed to leave the guests alive and well! Of course, Sandy was also glad that the uninvited guest had left her house, and that such a close acquaintance with a wild beast ended safely.

And so that such a story would not happen again, since then the woman began to close the door for dogs at night and installed several additional lamps in front of the house. That’s how an elderly American woman became the heroine of the modern interpretation of the old famous fairy tale about Little Red Riding Hood. It’s good that she was able to make the right decision and quickly called the police, thanks to which this story ended well for all its participants. Wild animals quite often come to settlements in search of food. In most cases, they behave calmly and not aggressively, but they may well scare.

Хорошего дня и отличного настроения!
