Coy­ote at­tack in Fair­fax City

The Washington Post Sunday - - METRO -

FAIR­FAX CITY, Daniels Run Park, Sept. 21. The own­ers of a dog were walk­ing it off-leash in the evening when one or two coy­otes at­tacked the pet, which had mi­nor wounds on a hind leg. The dog was given a ra­bies booster shot and was put un­der a 45-day quar­an­tine. Own­ers are re­minded that the city re­quires dogs to be leashed when off their prop­erty. Also, when a dog is leashed, there is less risk of it be­ing seen as a threat by the lo­cal coy­ote pop­u­la­tion, ac­cord­ing to an an­i­mal con­trol re­lease. Among in­ci­dents re­ported by the an­i­mal con­trol sec­tion of the Fair­fax City Po­lice Depart­ment.
