Kids bitten by coyotes

Montreal police say three young children have been bitten by coyotes in the last week.

They say all three incidents occurred in parks in the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough in the north of the city.

The most recent attack occurred Saturday when a three-year-old boy was wounded by a coyote at about 6:30 p.m., and police say his injuries are minor.

A boy and a girl, both age 5, were also bitten in separate incidents last week.

Police say they both suffered minor injuries.

The City of Montreal says such attacks are rare, but it recommends that people keep their dogs on leashes and refrain from feeding or approaching coyotes in order to minimize incidents.
