N.H. police on lookout for coyote that attacked three dogs
Police and wildlife officers in southeastern New Hampshire are frantically searching for a coyote that reportedly attacked and injured multiple dogs just outside Dover over the recently past weekend.
The coyote, a predatory canid native to North America, has injured at least three dogs. It first struck at around 4 a.m. on Sunday after a Somersworth woman let her two dogs out the rear deck of her Blackwater Road home.
Jessica Cormier told police that her yellow Labrador retriever named Tessa was mauled by the coyote. Tessa suffered severe injuries to one of her ear and leg. The female dog is luckily expected to recover.
Describing the attack, Cormier said, “It was attacking her repeatedly, nonstop, and regardless of me screaming and yelling at it and punching the door and hitting the walls and stuff, it wasn't stopping.”
According to the state Fish & Game officials, the coyote attacked again, injuring two mastiffs just a few miles away later in the afternoon on the same day. Officials warned that the coyote could be rabid.
Native to North America, the coyote is a smaller, more basal animal than the gray wolf, its close relative. The canid species is roughly the North American equivalent to the Old World golden jackal, but it is larger in size and more predatory in nature.
