New Jersey police killed a 35-pound female coyote about a quarter mile from where Brayden Gazette was attacked by a coyote just the other day while walking with his 8-year old sister in returning to their house across the street from a neighbors where they had been playing.

Officials will test the coyote for rabies but they have no idea whether this is the same coyote that attacked Gazette. Officials, during their hunt for the coyote that attacked the 5-year old boy, spotted several coyotes in the area of their search.
