SAN DIEGO, Calif. – A dog owner went to the extreme to protect his pets.

“I just heard a yelp and I turned around and I saw her in the mouth of a coyote,” Paul Mott told ABC 10.

Mott says he was at the dog park with his dog, Buffy, when a coyote attacked. Before he could do anything, his dog was gone.

“What would it take to make my dog be able to withstand a coyote attack?” he said.

In the end, he invented the CoyoteVest, which is a vest that contains spikes and long plastic quills to make dogs less appealing to predators.

“I just want to save my dogs, and then I realized maybe this invention can save someone else’s dog,” he said.

He also invented a more elaborate CoyoteVest also contains a remote system that can shock a coyote if it won’t release the dog.
