GLENDORA >> An apparently sick and distressed coyote is expected to be euthanized after it fatally attacked a pet cat in a Glendora neighborhood Wednesday, police said.
The coyote attacked the cat about 3:30 p.m. in the 400 block of W. Kirkwall Road, Glendora police officials said in a written statement. The cat died, and officials notified the owner.
A witness chased after the coyote as it ran into the garage of a home a few blocks away, police said.
California Department of Fish and Wildlife officials Inland Valley Humane Society officials responded to the scene found the coyote still inside the garage, officials said.
Fish and Wildlife officials hazed the animal out of the garage before Inland Valley Humane Society officials captured it down the street, according to Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman Janice Mackey.
“Based on established policies, procedures and the facts of this particular incident, the animal was trapped and will be humanely euthanized as required by law,” the police statement said.
