CHICAGO — Another coyote attack was reported in Chicago Wednesday night when a man walked into a hospital with a wound on his buttocks that he says came from a coyote.
The 32-year-old man showed up at Northwestern Memorial Hospital with a scratch on his behind, according to Chicago police.
He told officers that on Wednesday evening a coyote attacked him from behind and bit him in the buttocks while he walked on a sidewalk in the 700 block of North Fairbanks Court, police said.
The 32-year-old was listed in good condition and will be released, police said.
Earlier that afternoon, a 5-year-old boy was bitten in the head by a coyote on Wednesday afternoon outside a nature museum in Lincoln Park.
The boy was “bitten about the head” and was taken to Lurie Children’s Hospital, said a police spokesman.
The coyote in both incidents remained at large as of Thursday morning.
