Coyote Attacks Woman, Pit Bull in Westchester

An interesting twist: A coyote attacked a woman walking along trails in Greenburgh, NY yesterday afternoon, and later went on to attack a man's Pit Bull.

Thankfully, both the woman and the dog are expected to recover from their injuries.

The animal was seen darting in and out of traffic, odd behavior for a coyote, never mind in broad daylight. Officials tracked the animal by helicopter, but weren't able to catch it. They warned residents that it may have rabies and residents should keep an eye on their kids and small animals. I'd keep an eye on all sized animals, seeing how it attacked a Pit Bull and a woman, but what do I know.

Sidenote: It's funny; I tried to find more links to this story, but I only found one link to the Journal News' LoHud.com story and a short story on a radio station. I guess potentially rabid coyote attacks aren't as interesting as Pit Bull attacks either.

  1. Yes, interesting how pit bull attacks are more attention-grabbing than coyote attacks. I guess this is a problem in some areas; remember what happened to Jessica Simpson's little pooch? Out here we're mainly fending off rats. Mr. B. loves chasing them.
