Residents called authorities after spotting a coyote acting aggressively in broad daylight Monday.
A neighbor along Quaker Road in Princeton called police around 12: 25 p.m. about a coyote that was growling at residents and acting aggressively, according to police. The caller also told investigators that the animal appeared disoriented.
Officials located the coyote in a wooded area just off Quaker Road. Authorities euthanized the animal after confirming its unusual behavior, according to reports.
Coyote sightings are common in this part of central New Jersey, but the time of day and displayed aggression made this an atypical occurrence, according to a police spokesman.
