2 dogs attacked by coyotes in Manchester


MANCHESTER, Conn. (WTNH) — Manchester police and DEEP officials are warning residents to be cautious of coyotes.

On Friday, Manchester Animal Control officers were called to Garth Road for a report of two dogs being attacked by a pair of coyotes. Police say the dog was attacked while with its owner on a trail behind Garth Road.

Police say the owner and one dog were uninjured, and the other dog received five wounds and is being treated at a local veterinarian’s office.

DEEP says it is “whelping season” and coyotes will have heightened aggression during these times. Officials are asking residents to use caution when walking outside and should also be careful in letting dogs outside.
