FAIRFAX, Va. (WUSA) -- Police here are warning some prowlers are on the loose.

But these are four legged invaders from the other side of the country.

Three coyotes attacked a woman's dog in Daniels Run Park, badly injuring but not killing it. The six year old, 85 pound yellow lab was off leash, fetching a ball when the coyotes chewed it up on Monday.

Police are urging people to stay on the trail and keep their dogs close to them in the park. And they say you should bring in the dog food and tie down the garbage outside your home at night.
