Details Of The Capture Of The Coyote

FOX 4 revealed that the animal was captured Thursday morning at 7:30 AM. The coyote attempted to attack officers, but it was shot non-lethally and caught. Video of the animal being taken into a vehicle was also provided by FOX 4:

Arlington Animal Services stated, via Ashley Woolnough, who is part of the organization, that they believe the right aggressive coyote has been captured, but time will only tell:

"We assume this may be one of the problem coyotes we've been dealing with because it was aggressive...With the actions that have been described, with the animal actively aggressive towards people, we hope this is the right one. However, we will continue efforts and we aren’t stopping now."
