“My husband was out of town and my poor children were up, and I’m screaming,” she described to the news station.

Moriarty’s Miniature Schnauzer soon came into the room and began to bark at the wild animal, but the coyote remained calm and didn’t respond. It is just crouched down on the ground and remained silent.

“Then I realized, ‘Holy crud, I have a coyote stuck in my bedroom,'” Moriarty recalled.
