Specialists from Texas Wildlife Services shot and killed a coyote last night believed to be the one which attacked a 2-year-old on his White Rock Valley porch Tuesday morning. The animal was roaming the wooded area off Goforth Road near White Rock Stables when it was located by authorities, who’d been searching for it since the attack. Rabies testing and a full examination is being done to ensure it is the unique coyote responsible for harming the toddler.
