YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — Tests show that a coyote that bit two people in Yellowstone National Park did not have rabies.

Colin Campbell, a deputy superintendent at Yellowstone, says the young female coyote bit two people near Old Faithful just before Christmas.

A park ranger and a maintenance worker tracked the coyote and killed it with a handgun.

The animal was tested at the Montana Department of Livestock's veterinary lab.
