Edmonton, Alberta - 20 Nov 2006: Coyote Attacks Ten-year-old

A coyote has attacked a pair of children playing in a back yard in Edmonton. The animal fled after the children responded by yelling and kicking. It was eventually cornered and shot by authorities. The children, while bitten, were not seriously injured.

The coyote attacked the children while they were having a snowball fight in a backyard in central Edmonton. Neighbours had seen the coyote eating garbage and wandering around the area in the last week, said the father of one of the victims.
