Dog owners in Alaska are buying special vests to protect their pets from bald eagles. Recently, pet dogs have been taken away by eagles. Bald eagles are growing in number in Alaska because of conservation. There are around 30,000 of them in Alaska. Bird lovers are happy about this, but pet owners are worried. The eagles are strong and can fly away with a 6-kilogram animal. The eagles are bad for farmers because they kill their chickens.

The vest is called the CoyoteVest. It protects small dogs from coyotes - wild dogs, similar to a wolf. The vest has spikes and other sharp things to protect the pet. Some vests are brightly coloured to scare birds away. It is made of a material called Kevlar. This is used in bulletproof vests. This protects dogs from the teeth of larger dogs. The vest helps to stop surprise attacks. It gives owners time to help a pet before it gets badly hurt.
