MANCHESTER - Police responded this week to several reports of a possible coyote or other 'German Shepherd-like' animal in a close-knit neighborhood of Chestnut Street and Ridge Road.
Police could not confirm whether the animal had attacked anything but neighbors said otherwise.
"The chicken coops were nice and tight so he couldn't get the chickens. So he went for the cat," said one woman, who says she observed the raid of the coyote unravel.
With reports that one pet had been killed, other residents of the area moved to lock their four-legged loved ones safe inside.
"It had somebody's cat, and it brought it in the woods and killed it. So I came home to make sure she [the cat] was okay and she was," the same woman said.
Officers and animal control officers surrounded the coyote in a resident's backyard hoping to shoot it with a tranquilizer dart. But without a safe shot, the coyote ran back into the woods. Manchester police are attempting to set up traps in the area where the coyote was located in hopes of catching it before it attacks again.
Police are warning people in the area to stay clear of the animal if it is sighted.
