Pack of coyotes kill family’s dog in Suntree
A group of coyotes has been spotted roaming around the Suntree area over the last two months, according to wildlife trappers and country club staff. Suntree Country Club staff and a wildlife trapper believe the group of five coyotes have become unafraid of people and are responsible for killing a dog. Lamontaigne believes the pack consists of five coyotes and said one has a distinctive and unusual black coat. “They’ve been on property for a couple of months,” Lamontaigne said. Dean said the animals spotted in Suntree have shown no signs of rabies that the risk is always there.
