Fearless 84-Year-Old Woman Fends Off Pack of Coyotes to Rescue Dog Published: July 17, 2014

When people are confronted by a wild pack of coyotes, they run or hide or cower with fear. But an 84-year-old woman who lives in Bensenville, just outside of Chicago, risked her life to save a dog from a vicious attack, according to Yahoo Shine.

Dolores "Dolly" Jefferson told NBC Chicago that she was getting her morning coffee when her dog started barking and alerted her to a problem behind her home. When Jefferson walked behind her house to check on the situation, she saw her neighbor's dog surrounded by five large coyotes.

Roxie, an 11-year old, 26-pound Egyptian Fairhound, had already been bitten on the nose and was running around trying to escape the pack. Roxie's owner, Rich Parent, was chopping wood with a wood splitter at the time and couldn't hear or see the attack happening.
