Attacks happened at Bayview Village Park
Two people were bitten by a coyote in Bayview Village Park on Sunday.
Toronto Police were called to the park at 2945 Bayview Ave. for reports of a coyote that was “aggressive and has attacked citizens.”
The extent of the injuries wasn’t immediately known.
Members with Toronto Animal Services went to the scene along with the Toronto Police Emergency Task Force. A City of Toronto statement said they “have been in the area all day today working diligently to capture the coyote and will resume efforts (Monday.)
“The coyote is still at large,” the statement added, “and the City advises residents in the area to please stay away from the park and use caution in the neighbouring areas.”
The city’s statement said coyotes generally don’t pose danger to people and a bite to a human is abnormal behaviour.
