CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Sheriff Ken Furlong says the Sheriff's Office and Nevada Department of Wildlife want to find the coyote that killed a dog this morning at Mills Park.
Furlong says the coyote went after a dog believed to be a chihuahua around 10am. Animal Control took the dog to a vet where it later died. Furlong says tests will be done to see if the deceased dog had any diseases caused by the attack.
The coyote was last seen at around 10:15 a.m. near Carson City High School.
Furlong wants to remind the public that this morning’s event was unique, as coyotes are not known to go where people are around.
