2 coyote attacks in 1 hour in NYC

2010-09-06 19:07

Rye Brook - A teen and a toddler have come face-to-face with a coyote in two separate incidents within about an hour in a New York City suburb.

The toddler's father took her to get medical care, but the teen was unhurt.

Authorities tell The Journal News that a coyote lunged at the teen boy Sunday evening in Rye Brook. About an hour later, the 2-year-old girl was attacked near her home about 3km away.

In June, the town of Rye - about 5km from Rye Brook - had two coyote attacks within four days.

A 3-year-old girl playing in her backyard was jumped from behind by a coyote, and a 6-year-old girl was mauled by two coyotes.

Rye Brook is about 50km northeast of Manhattan.
