VIDEO: Mother speaks out after she and child in stroller attacked by coyote in New Jersey park


A mom and her 4-year-old son were attacked by a coyote as they walked in a New Jersey park Thursday evening, police say.

The mom and son were attacked by the animal inside the Fairfield Recreational Complex on Hollywood Avenue in Fairfield.

The article goes on to state the following:

The 37-year-old mom was pushing her toddler son in a stroller just before 7 p.m. in between tennis courts and the park’s pool, near a wooded area, police said. Another person at the park alerted the mom that the coyote was following directly behind her, and when the mom turned to see, the critter lunged at her. She fell to the ground and the stroller came toppling down with her, as the coyote bit her on the leg, according to cops.

The coyote then went after the small child, chomping down on his leg before going back after the mom, who had gotten back up to get the stroller upright. The animal then took off into the woods, police said.

The report further states that when police finally located the coyote walking along a fence line, it became aggressive and tried to approach the officer, forcing him to open fire and kill it.

The mom spoke out about the incident in the following CBS News interview:
