This is my neighbor. We've seen this coyote multiple times in my yard the past month.
To set the record straight, these are great parents with 3 little boys. Two of the boys were on the front porch with mom- she walked into the house to grab a pacifier on the couch with the door open and the coyote attacked the 2 year old. She was looking away less than 10 seconds.
The child will be ok- broken jaw and facial lacerations.
Folks called the city multiple times about this coyote- we live on white rock creek and have multiple packs around, but this guy was not normal. It was not being fed or petted as some media have reported- that's garbage. Say a prayer for the little boy- just one of those deals that happened in an instant.

Glad to hear the little one is doing better and hopefully a full recovery is in the near future.

Definitely a possibility and the little guy is being tested in the hospital. The coyote just looked like a scraggly young male looking for a territory when I would see him but he was definitely way too comfortable around people and in yards in broad daylight.
The cops shot and missed yesterday- neighborhood has officers posted up all over today still looking for him.

Coyote out in broad daylight and not afraid of humans. Rabies at top of list of possibilities. Need to find him(the coyote) and get him tested, otherwise boy is going to have to go through the post exposure treatment (or at least should).

Sad deal and have neighbors that know the family well. Freak accident but sounds like he will recover fully. He is probably too young to remember but hope it doesn't traumatize his older brother who watched it happen. Prayers to the whole family!

That’s just terrible. I hate them dang things. I sure hope the child recovers completely.
I don’t know if it’s all the people moving in and all the new buildings being built, displacing them but they definitely seem to be getting worse. I had a lamb destroyed four days ago and never heard a thing.

Terrible deal, prayers up for him and his family that saw this happen. Hopefully they can get the coyote put down and tested so he doesn't have to go through rabies shots if it's not necessary.

I’ve got a pack living across the street behind the elementary school in Dalworthington Gardens. I haven’t heard them a lot lately, but see at least one of them a couple of times a week. Last week, coming home from grocery store one ran across in front of me carrying a cat.

If you can catch THAT one, you can drop him in my hood. I'd rather have yotes than cats.

LoL, that’s probably why he is still around. In past year, I’ve seen a yote with a cat four times now.

I feel bad for the kid. Hopefully no lingering issues come from this. I lived in Tucson, AZ for a few years. While there seeing coyotes in the grocery store parking lot was common. Bobcats were plentiful and not a rare sight. It was rare to hear about a human getting attacked. However, grandma's poodle was never safe!

No chance to use it.theres a daycare across the street and it's a residential area. The coyote gets even with me I hollar at it,its stops looks and just continues to look for its next target.Middle of the day,people everywhere.

I haven’t see a coyote in my neighborhood for a while. I do have two bobcats that walk our backyard fence nightly which took care of all the rabbits running around. I live in Flower Mound.

Hope the little guy gets better soon. Tough deal for the whole family.

We have a bobcat or 2 that wonder our Allen neighborhood during the day. Few months ago a couple young neighborhood kids followed it through our yard recording it on their phones. Cat didn't care at all.

Prayer up for the little guy!

Been livin on the same 2.5 acres for 40+ years. From the start I would hear coyotes back side, to the east of me. Never saw one but could hear 'em talkin @ night. Back then it was all farm land as far as the eye could see. Now it has been divided into 10-15 ac. tracts and somewhat developed (wannabe farmers like me). Neighbor shot one in his back yard yesterday afternoon. First time he had ever actually seen one too. Too close for comfort!
