“He was a big one. He hung out for a long time in the backyard. He was staring at my dog through the window,” Nancy Spielberg reportedly said.

Nancy Spielberg, fearing for her poodle's life, called 911 Friday after a coyote wandered into her Bronx backyard, according to the New York Post.

“He was a big one. He hung out for a long time in the back yard. He was staring at my dog through the window,” Spielberg, 58, told the Post.

“I don’t really feel safe letting my dog out at night. I feel really uneasy. I’m an animal lover. I love all sorts of animals, but this one felt like a predator, like he couldn’t be rehabilitated. He was out in the daytime watching us for a very long time."

According to the report, Spielberg said two police officers and two animal-service workers showed up to take care of the coyote, but the animal had already disappeared by the time they arrived.

Nancy Spielberg, Steven Spielberg's younger sister, is a documentary producer whose work includes Elusive Justice: The Search for Nazi War Criminals and Above and Beyond.
