The owner of a Shih Tzu that was attacked by a coyote in South Mountain Reservation on Friday, June 30, has created a GoFundMe page to raise funds to help pay for the dog’s medical expenses.

Union resident Giselle Romero, 18, and her 13-year-old cousin were near the dog park in the reservation around 3 p.m. on Friday when a coyote attacked Romero’s dog Luna and her cousin. The cousin suffered puncture wounds on her leg that required stitches and is undergoing rabies treatment, per CBS2 News.

The dog has lost an eye but should recover otherwise “with the right treatment,” writes Romero.

Authorities reported a separate coyote attack in the reservation on Friday as well. Essex County has closed much of the reservation through July 6 as authorities search for the coyote with the intention of euthanizing it.
