The Milwaukee County Parks Department has received more reports of altercations between coyotes and pets off-leash across the county as the number of attacks continues to rise in the county.
A pack of coyotes and four dogs got into a fight at County Ground Park in Wauwatosa this week. The Department of Natural Resources said the coyotes were probably protecting their den or pups. The dogs were off leash and followed the coyotes into the woods where they got into an altercation. The DNR said the dogs suffered minor injuries.
