Earlier this week it was reported that a 3-year-old boy may have been attacked on October 27, 2013 on Chicago’s west side near Madison Street and Mayfield Avenue. The victim and his mother and boyfriend thought the animal was a German Shepherd and attempted to feed the animal when it bit young Emeil Hawkins. Chicago animal control officers were able to capture four coyotes in the area at Columbus Park after the attack. The coyotes tested negative for rabies, but were euthanized because they were living in the park.
As a precaution, Emeil was treated for rabies. See more in this NBC 5 Chicago report Boy Recovering From Possible Coyote Attack …
