FRISCO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The Frisco Police Department said Tuesday, a coyote possibly linked to recent attacks, was killed, removed from the area and sent to a lab for testing.
While the police department cannot definitively say this is the animal responsible, police said it is believed to likely be related.
The Frisco Police Department urges residents to remain vigilant and exercise caution in the affected area.
Michael Harvey, a good Samaritan who helped two women being attacked by a coyote on Monday morning, said of a coyote’s removal, “That’s some great news because it has been terrorizing the neighborhood, the community, here for a little while now so for them to actually have gotten it. It makes me feel wonderful and it takes a lot of burden off me and others around me I’m sure.”
Coyote sightings in the vicinity of Eldorado Parkway, between North County and Granbury, should immediately be reported to the non-emergency line (972-292-6010).
Citizens who witness an attack, or a coyote exhibiting aggressive behavior, are asked to call 911.
Unless threatened by an aggressive animal, residents are discouraged from taking matters into their own hands. This allows the professionals to work unimpeded for the safety of everyone.
A person jogging on the sidewalk of Eldorado Parkway was attacked by an aggressive coyote Wednesday, November 28 around 6:00 a.m., Frisco Police said.
A jogger suffered significant injuries to her neck and was rushed to a local hospital for treatment on November 28. The jogger underwent surgery for her injuries and is recovering.
