One of my dogs (22#) was killed by a pack of four coyotes last week in Mussel Rock, just a few miles from the quarry. I believe the area is not federal land, but Daly City has jurisdiction. Anyone know who can help us there? Two of the coyotes approached me and my other dog, but I yelled and threw rocks at them and they backed off.

It makes much more sense that coyotes would attack dogs. They are known to do this.

A couple of links to information about coyote behavior:

There is a sign posted at the entrance to the quarry path from the Rockaway parking lot that says that coyotes attacked the dogs that the woman was walking (not the woman) and that one of the dogs was bitten by a coyote.
