SIDE STREETS: Little Joey escapes, makes 'miraculous' recovery as abductor lurks

Joey, an 18-month-old Yorkie, was nearly killed Dec. 18, 2012, when a coyote jumped a fence into his yard and snatched him by the head. His owner, Frank VerHey, chased the coyote and Joey through their mobile home park until the coyote dropped Joey in a bloody heap. Photo by CHRISTIAN MURDOCK, THE GAZETTE
