TORONTO, Ont. – A coyote roaming around Neville Park in the beaches area has left a small dog dead, according to a Toronto Star report.

The victim was a small Maltese dog named Cujo, and reports indicate the dog was attacked Wednesday night at around 11 p.m.

The dog’s owner later spotted the dog limping and took him to the vet where had to be put down.

In 2009, a Chihuahua was taken from her backyard in the Neville Park area, and residents say several cats have gone missing over several years.

Last spring residents in the area videotaped a coyote playing with a pair of golden retrievers through a fence.
