Boy mistakes coyote for dog, gets bit on the face

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Cook County's animal control says a 3-year-old Chicago boy is recovering from a coyote bite on his face.

It happened on the city's Far West Side near Columbus Park.

Apparently the child was petting the wild animal because he thought it was a dog.

The little boy's name is Emeil Hawkins and he's going to be okay.

Animal control rounded up four of the coyotes that were seen in that area and they have since been euthanized.
