The Los Alamos County Animal Control Division wants to make sure residents and their pets are safe when using the county’s trails system.
Charles Lujan of the Animal Control Division said there have been reports of coyote attacks on dogs recently and wants to warn residents about the potential danger.
“Coyotes are hunting and they’re teaching their young how to hunt,” Lujan said. “When people are walking, we’d like them to use caution and keep their pets on a leash.”
Lujan said that taking a stick along on the walk, as well as a few rocks might also be a good idea, in case of a coyote attack.
