WOODWAY, Texas (KWTX) – A Waco-area boy used his crossbow to strike and kill a coyote suspected of killing several dogs in his neighborhood.

David Litle, 15, killed the prairie wolf at the Badger Ranch, a six-and-a-half acre property near Woodway, earlier this week.

“We have three dogs and I would be devastated if something happened to them,” said Litle.

“It is a relief to know the dogs and cats of Badger Ranch are a little safer now.”

The coyote, which had been spotted and photographed recently, reportedly weighed nearly 50 pounds when it was killed.

The coyote had been spotted by neighbors in the area.
