A schnauzer dog was attacked and killed by a coyote that jumped a fence Friday night in Wheaton.
The attack happened around 10:30 p.m. in the 600 block of Plamondon Court, according to a press release from Wheaton Police.
The dog was killed during the attack, Wheaton Chief of Police Mark Field told NBC News.
This is one of several reports of coyotes attacking dogs in Wheaton.
In October, a coyote was found with a dog in it's mouth while trying to escape a backyard. The animal dropped the dog when it couldn't fit it through the fence.
Two other Wheaton dogs were attacked by a coyote in September. One of the small dogs was injured. The other went missing and was later found dead.
The release advised residents to supervise small pets and small children while outdoors.
