A coyote.

A dog was killed and another was injured when they were attacked by a pack of coyotes in Watertown.

Watertown Police put out a warning on Monday about the attack that took place at about 11 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 15. They warned residents to be aware of coyotes, that have been spotted recently in on the streets and bike paths in the East End of Watertown.

A witness reported seeing three coyotes attack the dogs, who were being walked on Walnut Street, said Watertown Police Sgt. Ken Swift.

Swift said the Watertown Police had not had reports of any other attacks by coyotes.

The incident occurred on the same day that a coyote bit a five-year-old boy in Arlington.

  1. I’m so very sorry for the owner.

    Hoping Watertown News can clarify please.
    The police alert references a dog being attacked by three coyotes while walking with its owner on Friday night on Walnut Street.
    The article references coyotes attacking two dogs, injuring one and killing the other.
    It would be really helpful know as we are all out walking and being aware of our surroundings
    Thank you

  2. Walking the dog at 11 PM on the bike path. That is just plain stupid. Coyotes, skunks. rats etc., this is when they appear.
