Coyote bites 5-year-old boy in N.J. town

MIDDLETOWN, N.J. - A small child was bitten by a coyote, the second such attack in this town in less than two months, authorities said.

The boy, whose name wasn't released, suffered injuries to his face and back of his head requiring several stitches, police Lt. John McGuire said. He was treated and released at Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank.

The attack came less than seven weeks after police said a coyote grabbed a toddler who was playing in the back yard April 6. Relatives chased the animal away, and efforts to catch it turned up nothing. The 22-month-old boy, Liam Sadler, had to undergo rabies shots

Soon after Monday's attack, a coyote was spotted in the same housing development. Police fired a shot and the animal appeared to twitch, but a search found neither a carcass nor a blood trail.
