A white Maltese dog that was found dead Monday morning in Montrose was likely killed by a coyote, according to the staff at Rosemont Pet Hospital.

The dog, Minnie, was reportedly found dead in the 2500 block of Community Avenue in Montrose. Attempts to reach the owners were unsuccessful.

It's not uncommon for coyotes to attack small pets in urban areas. Maltese dogs typically weigh no more than 5 pounds.

Officials suggest residents keep pet food indoors and secure trash cans to dissuade wildlife from moving in. Clearing brush and overgrowth can also make a neighborhood less desirable for coyotes, officials say.
