POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - Officials at an eastern Idaho zoo are investigating after a coyote inside an exhibit was killed and another injured.

Zoo Idaho officials tell the Idaho State Journal (https://bit.ly/1XvsGzo) that workers on Saturday morning found Odie dead in the exhibit and Ky injured.

Zoo Superintendent Peter Pruett says the cause of Odie’s death isn’t known but there’s evidence of a fight between the coyotes and another animal through the exhibit fence.

He says modifications are being made to the exhibit to prevent similar events in the future.

Officials say the attack was not made by another zoo animal.

Pruett says the coyotes had been at the exhibit for about 10 years.

Officials say Ky is responding well to veterinary treatment.
