HIGHLAND, ILL (KMOV.com) -

A Highland woman says a coyote attacked her dog in October.

A woman named Amy says she let her dog Ruby outside and when she stepped back inside, her dog was missing.

The dog was killed.

The Missouri Department of Conservation reports coyotes adapt well to urban and suburban environments.

Conservation agents also say to keep a close eye on your dog when you take them out. Loud noises can scare coyotes away easily.

The sighting marks one of many recent coyote sightings in the St. Louis area.
