MOUNT KISCO, N.Y.— A coyote attack on three dogs on Friday prompted police to issue an alert urging residents to be vigilant about monitoring their children and pets outside.

Around 7 a.m. three coyotes descended on Kristin Porteus’ three small Chihuahua terrier mixes at her  Langeland Drive home, killing one of them despite Porteus’ efforts to prevent the attack, according to a report in The Journal News.

Mount Kisco police sent out an online alert Saturday night about the coyote attack. A coyote also was sighted Friday evening in northeast Mount Kisco. The  incidents are the latest in a string of confrontations with coyotes.
