Courage was shown during coyote attack

I would like to recommend Sarah James as a real Summerland good apple.

Dear Editor:

I would like to recommend Sarah James as a real Summerland good apple.

Last week she made a steep and slippery area on the Peach Orchard trail a lot safer by placing a rope handrail to help walkers negotiate the area. Today, while exercising a friend’s dog in the same area, she was attacked by three coyotes.

She put her own safety way behind that of the dog she was walking by immediately unzipping her jacket and throwing herself over the dog, holding the dog beneath her with one hand and using the other hand to try to beat off the attacking coyotes. She was badly scratched and her jacket was shredded but she saved the dog.

Her quick actions probably not only saved the dog but also saved her from much more severe injuries.
