Police are warning residents after separate incidents in which coyotes killed one dog and attacked another in New Canaan.
Both incidents occurred in the southwest area of town, police said.
The most recent attack occurred Thursday, Aug. 22 at around 7 a.m.
An Adams Lane resident attempted to chase down two large coyotes when one of the coyotes grabbed, killed and ran off with a 13-pound chihuahua mix.
The first incident happened on Monday, Aug. 19 when a labrador retriever on Knapp Lane sustained puncture wounds on its hind leg, which is believed to have been caused by a coyote. The dog's owner saw two large coyotes in his yard, police said.
Pet owners are reminded by police to be watchful and always supervise their dogs any time of day.
