Your article only goes to show your ignorance of the coyote in PA, and the USA.
The Coyote is known as the "Little Wolf", because they are less than 1/2 the size of a wolf, but have many of the characteristics of the Wolf. The Love of the kill!
Coyotes usually run as individuals, or family groups, but also do run in packs. Yes, MOST of the time they are rodent or carrion eaters, but they also love fresh meat. In PA they are killing lots of deer fawns. On dairy farms they will await a cow that is calving, and occasionally kill and drag off the calf. Sheep farmers are especially hard hit by the "Little Wolf", because a lamb is very easy to carry off.
Closer to home....Many people are loosing their small pets that run loose outside, especially cats that coyotes count as special treats.
Now to the Attacks you mention. There have been far more than 2 attacks on pets....in fact there have been several attacks or attempted attacks on small children as well.
Yes, the coyote is a challenge to hunt, and NO very few people eat them, however.....remember...... there are certain groups of people who consider dogs a delicacy!
Now....before you go spouting off about someone killing something, better do a bit of research, and see what the critter is doing.
