Tanya Ascencio of Eagle Rock looked out of her window this morning to find a pair of coyotes (two of them pictured) roaming in her front yard before taking a stroll down the street. Those coyotes, who were later joined by a third, were out for more than a morning stroll, however. One of the coyotes was carrying a small dog in its mouth as it headed north on Ellenwood Drive near York Boulevard, she said. “It was kind of scary.” A few days earlier, Ascencio had spotted a sign nearby warning pet owners to watch out for coyotes.
