Police: Dad strangles coyote to defend family under attack

National/World

KENSINGTON, NH (AP) Police say a coyote attacked a pair of dogs, bit a woman and skirmished with a vehicle before being killed by a father who was protecting his family.

The Kensington Police Department believes the same coyote was responsible Monday for attacking a vehicle in Hampton Falls, biting a 62-year-old woman and her dogs on a porch in Kensington, and attacking a family on a walking trail in Exeter.

New Hampshire Fish and Game collected the coyote and will test it for rabies.
