Coyotes Kill Chihuahua, Injure Labrador in New Canaan

Coyotes killed a chihuahua and injured a Labrador Retriever in New Canaan and police are issuing a warning for pet owners to be cautious. 

Police said a resident of Adams Lane tried to chase down two large coyotes around 7 a.m. Thursday and one grabbed a 13-pound chihuahua mix, ran off with it and killed the dog. 

A few days earlier, a resident of Knapp Lane saw two large coyotes in his yard and his Labrador retriever later sustained puncture wounds on its hind leg, which are believed to be from a coyote.
