Denver (AP) State Wildlife Officials say coyotes attacked a 51-year-old Denver woman walking her dog on Saturday evening.

The woman reported being surrounded by three coyotes near her home on the 3900 block of South Oneida Street.

She said two of the animals attacked her 75-pound Labrador Retriever. When she tried to protect her pet, one of the coyotes scratched and bit her.

The woman was treated at a Denver hospital and released the same evening. She took her dog to a veterinary hospital.

Colorado Division of Wildlife Officers were unable to track down the coyotes. But the agency says it will keep looking for the animals and will kill them if they're found.

Saturday's attack marks the third time since December a coyote has bitten a person in the Denver area.
