The Star Ledger is reporting a family dog was attacked and killed by a coyote! The unleashed dog, a 20 lb Miniature Pinscher, ran ahead of it’s owner by about 100 yards when the owner heard the attack. Although bears are almost common in the area, an aggressive coyote is news.
The attack took place in Sparta Glen Park and the police are calling the occurrence the first. Be that as it may, the owner is extremely distressed.
Please stay safe out there little fur friends. Stay on leash and stay with your pawrents.
