After a coyote was struck by a vehicle on Cutlers Farm Road around 8:20 Tuesday night, passing motorists mistaking her for a dog moved the injured coyote to the side of the road and were petting the animal to comfort her, according to Monroe Animal Control.

The animal later died from a head injury and her remains were removed for cremation, Animal Control Officer Ed Risko said.

He said the young female coyote, which weighed about 30 pounds, was hit on the stretch of Cutlers Farm Road between Great Oak Farm and Pepper Street.

Must have been Dion Roach mistaking yet another dog for a Coyote. The person "comforting" this coyote is lucky to still have a face.

Why put comforting in quotes? Yes, an injured wild animal is dangerous, but these folks acted out of kindness. What you are being is a internet troll. Google it.

"Google that, dumb_ss." I can't compete with that sophisticated wit.

I for one am happy to hear there are still a few compassionate people left in this world.

Yeah...kickball. Keep the tired insults coming.

You are a winner Joe Mancini! I'm guessing you were a bully in school.

Better to be a bully than be bullied......
