Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Shortly after posting "TV Stations, Newspapers See Coyote-Attack Story Very Differently," about coverage of a woman who was recently swarmed by coyotes while walking her dog, I received a note from Alek Komarnitsky, whose website, Komar.org, features images of his highly photogenic family and lots of other cool stuff, too. Among the highlights: an excellent series of shots by Komarnitsky capturing a confrontation between a coyote and two dogs in Boulder County, slightly north of Arapahoe and about half a mile west of Highway 287.

A slide show accessible here captures the action, which focuses on a Labrador and a German Shepherd mix standing up for civilization against an assault from the wild kingdom. Watch the fur fly.
