GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — A coyote believed responsible for the recent killings of several pets in a Galveston County neighborhood has been caught.

Police tell The Galveston County Daily News the animal has been snagged in a trap set placed by the department's animal control division.

At least four pets in the neighborhood just east of Galveston's Scholes Airport had been found dead and a coyote was suspected.

Police Lt. Michael Gray says the captured coyote will be taken to the Galveston Humane Society for rabies tests, then will be euthanized.
