Coyote Attacks: Suburban Seattle coyote has a taste for toddlers
By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love
Authorities have asked residents of Bellevue, Oregon, just east of Seattle, to secure their garbage and keep their pets and pet foot indoors, but they don’t need to tell anyone to keep a close eye on their young children. No doubt, folks are already doing that since Jacob Town, 4, and Tristan Bec, 18 months, were nipped by a coyote in separate incidents. Authorities believe both cases involved the same animal, and they have set traps to catch it.
