Coyote warning issued after Aurora man attacked
May 8, 2012 (AURORA, Ill.) (WLS) -- Police in west suburban Aurora are warning residents to watch for coyotes after a man was bitten while standing in his yard.
The city sent hundreds of fliers to residents on Aurora's Near West Side after they determined the animal that attacked was likely a coyote.
The man was not seriously hurt in the attack, which happened late in April. The animal ran off reportedly, and city employees couldn't find it.
Coyote attacks on humans are extremely rare, and officials say this is the first report of such an attack in Aurora.
