KINGSBURY, NY (WRGB) --New developments now on the coyote that officials believe attacked a woman in Kingsbury.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office said this morning the animal tested positive for rabies.

A state conservation officer shot and killed the coyote after he says he had a run-in with it yesterday on the bike path between the Five Combines in Kingsbury and Fort Edward.

It's the same animal officials believe had been following park-goers.
