A Georgia Sheepdog named Casper proved that he might be the baddest canine in the country after he was attacked by an entire pack of coyotes… and won.
The 8-on-1 fight lasted for over a half hour and Casper emerged victorious, and the coyotes? He killed all 8 of them…
Farm owner John Wierwiller’s said this group of coyotes were particularly unafraid of him, and while he didn’t feel threatened himself, Casper appeared to be the pack’s target.
“He came out the fence here and killed more and they had a fight all up and down this creek… it wasn’t a short thing, it was like a half hour.”
When the dust settled, Casper was nowhere to be seen, but there was evidence that he took a beating. John feared the worst:
“If he wasn’t killed we knew he was hurt because we found parts of his tail and blood, so we were worried about him.”
Finally, after two days in the wild, Casper came home… battered and bruised, with a number of deep wounds, but alive:
“He was kinda looking at me like, ‘Boss, stop looking at how bad I look, just take care of me.’
Casper’s injuries were substantial, but as the old saying goes, “you should see the other guy.”
“It looked like a coyote grabbed his skin and peeled it right off.”
LifeLine Animal Project stepped in to help, launching a GoFundMe campaign to cover Casper’s $15,000 hospital bill. The campaign quickly exceeded their goal, raising enough funds to fully cover Casper and save future animals as well.
What a badass… I mean, and 8-on-1 street fight? Even the best brawlers on the planet don’t like those odds.
And coyotes typically don’t hunt in packs like wolves, however they are known to be very social animals that run in smaller family groups.
However, when food gets scare coyotes can team up, and sometimes will even cooperatively hunt with other species to secure a meal. Most likely, this was a large litter of pups that hadn’t left mom and dad quite yet, giving them strength in numbers, as well as the confidence to mount a large attack.
Nevertheless, they f*cked around with Casper… and they found out.
