Paris Hilton PHiltonCoyotes200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Two of Paris Hilton's pet dogs were killed by coyotes earlier this week X17online has learned. The dogs were apparently on the grounds of Paris' hillside home when the attack occurred.

"Paris is really upset about it," a source close to Paris told X17online exclusively. "Some people think she's eccentric, having so many pets, but she just really, really loves animals and it was devastating for her."

It is not clear which of Paris' dogs were killed in the attack.

Los Angeles area animal control officials called the attack "unfortunate" and said that it can be difficult for residents who live in areas where coyotes are found to protect their pets.

Hilton is a well known animal lover and has often been photographed with her pets at a variety of high profile events.
