The coyote that tried to drag a toddler from her Lake Arrowhead home last month is dead.State Fish and Game Wardens shot and killed the animal after a DNA test proved that the coyote was in fact the one responsible for the attack.

Authorities had collected saliva samples from the girl's clothes.

The coyote grabbed the 18-month-old by her head and tried to drag her from her front yard before the child's mother intervened.

She suffered wounds to her head and neck.
