Coyote attack in Niagara County

NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities still don't know what prompted a coyote to attack a man in Niagara County this week, but it wasn't rabies.

The coyote was shot and killed by a police officer in North Tonawanda late Wednesday night after it bit a man walking by the side of the road.

The coyote attack was the third in three weeks in the Western New York town. Police don't know whether the same animal was to blame.

Health officials now say tests on the coyote's brain turned up no sign of rabies, which can cause animals to act aggressively.

Authorities say the coyote also took a run at police and was trying to climb the side of a patrol car when it was shot.
