SADDLE RIVER, New Jersey — Cops are on the hunt for a pack of wild-eyed, killer coyotes that surrounded a woman and nearly tore apart her dog in a sinister suburban standoff.
Police in Saddle River, New Jersey have warned residents to let small children and pets outside alone following Thursday’s terrifying episode.
Cops say the woman had been walking her dog down a suburban street when a pack of about five snarling coyotes began circling around them. They eventually came within six feet of the woman and her pooch.
They only gave up their pursuit when a passing motorist began honking his horn, scaring the beasts away.
Animal control officials have suggested residents consider carrying a compressed air horn or a walking stick to fend off any similar encounters.
