BOZEMAN, Mont. -

State wildlife officials say a dog was killed by two coyotes on the south end of the Bridger Mountains near Bozeman.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials released a statement Friday saying a Bozeman woman saw her dogs being attacked by animals Thursday evening. Wildlife officials determined coyotes were responsible.

FWP says there may be a coyote den with pups near the "M'' on the mountain and urged residents to be cautious and keep their animals close and under control when in rural settings.
