Coyote bites 5-year-old boy at California college campus

Professional trappers will try to catch a coyote that bit a 5-year-old boy on a Los Angeles college campus.

Lt. J.C. Healy with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife says the child was walking with his father Wednesday when the boy cried out, "He bit me!"

Healy says the father chased the coyote away. The boy suffered a minor leg wound.

The Los Angeles Times says that shortly after the biting, a coyote aggressively approached a student on campus. A school police officer fired his gun at the animal. Police believe it was struck but escaped into hills surrounding California State University, Los Angeles.

Officials will try and get the coyote's DNA from the boy's pants. Healy says if trappers manage to catch the animal, it will be euthanized.
