Just weeks after a pair of coyote attacks in Westchester, one of the animals was reportedly captured near the scene of one of the incidents.

According to The Journal News, authorities in Rye caught and killed a male coyote last Saturday.

Rye Mayor Doug French told the paper that the news was kept quiet in hopes of trapping more of the animals.

The capture was reportedly made in a wooded area off North Street, close to where the second of two attacks on little girls took place in June.
