Six-year-old girl bit by coyote in Oshawa park, Durham police say
Police east of Toronto are warning people to be cautious after a six-year-old girl was bitten by a coyote on Thursday evening.
Durham Regional Police say the girl was playing in Northway Court Park in Oshawa, Ont., when she was approached by the animal at about 8:30 p.m.
They say the coyote bit her, and then several adults scared it off.
The girl was taken to hospital for treatment of the bite, which is not life-threatening.
Police say Oshawa Animal Services tried to capture the coyote, but it escaped into a ravine.
Officers are warning residents to read up on coyotes so they know how to react when they see one.
