That coyote that went on a rampage through Rye Brook last weekend before it was finally killed by police? Turns out the animal has tested positive for rabies, the first confirmation of rabies in a coyote in the county. The coyote attacked a toddler, her father, and a teenager Sunday, all of whom were being treated for the viral infection. [AP via NYT]
