Coyote Attack On Cal State L.A. Campus




A coyote bit a 5-year-old boy on the campus of Cal State Los Angeles, leading to a pursuit of the animal and shots fired on Thursday night. 

Here’s CBS2 in Los Angeles (which also posted the video above):

The shooting happened around 8:15 p.m., the Los Angeles Police Dept. said. LAPD is assisting in the investigation.

A 5-year-old boy who was walking on the campus with his mother was bitten by a coyote around 6:40 p.m.

A short time later, what’s believed to be the same coyote made an aggressive move towards a female student, who then reported it to police.

Officers said the coyote was hit but ran off.

The good news was the boy who was bit will be OK, but despite the mostly urban setting of the campus located near the intersection of the 710 and 10 freeways east of downtown, there could be more animals on campus.
