NY girl attacked by coyote in 2nd strike in 4 days

RYE, N.Y. (AP) - A coyote has attacked a 3-year-old girl playing
in her backyard in suburban New York, the second coyote attack on a
child in the same suburb within four days.
Rye Mayor Doug French says the 3-year-old was taken to the
hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after the Tuesday night
attack. The girl's house is behind the Rye Nature Center, which is
located on a 47-acre wildlife preserve.
The latest attack occurred as Rye Police Commissioner William
Connors was addressing a group of residents about the last coyote
attack.
On Friday, two coyotes attacked a 6-year-old girl in her front
yard. She was treated for scratches and bites at a hospital and
released.
The two attacks happened about 1.5 miles apart.
