SADDLE RIVER, N.J. (AP) - Police in New Jersey are warning that a pack of coyotes surrounded a dog walker and attempted to snatch the dog.

The confrontation took place last Thursday on Oak Road in Saddle River.

Police say approximately five coyotes circled within a 6-foot (2-meter) radius of the person and the small leased dog.

The pack ran off when a passing motorist honked the horn and got out of the vehicle.

State wildlife officials are investigating.

Officials advised walkers and joggers to carry an air horn or a walking stick as a precaution.
