Durham Police are warning parents to not let their children approach wild animals after a second child in a week was bitten by a coyote.

Last week a six year-old girl was bitten in Northway Court Park, which is adjacent to a small ravine by Harmony Creek. She was taken to hospital for treatment.

On Monday a four year-old boy was bitten by a coyote in the city’s north end, near Britannia Avenue East and Bridle Road.
Police said the boy thought the coyote was a dog and wanted to pet it.

He suffered minor injuries.
