A coyote attack that occurred in broad daylight Tuesday in Golden Gate Park has dog owners on alert. NBC Bay Area reports that a dog underwent surgery following the 11 a.m. attack near the polo fields. Several coyotes were reportedly involved and now residents are hoping to humanely decrease the animal’s population in the park by relocating them. Others believe the coyotes have the right to share the park with dogs and humans and suggest that dog walkers avoid areas where coyotes have been spotted.
