Police in west suburban Riverside are warning people about a coyote believed to have killed a puppy.

The 7-month-old bichon-poodle mix was attacked Saturday night and later died.

A veterinarian who treated the puppy says the injuries were consistent with a coyote attack.

The owner did not actually see a coyote. However, police say wild animal sightings are not unknown in Riverside, including coyotes, which have been spotted in the area in the past.
