CALIFORNIA – Residents in California are being warned after another child was recently attacked by a coyote.

The most recent incident was involving just a 2-year-old, according to ABC News.

“It was a child, about approximately 2 years old, was in the garage. They opened the garage up and the coyote came in and actually got the child on the neck area and part of the cheek,” California Department of Fish and Wildlife Lt. Kent Smirl told ABC’s Los Angeles station KABC.

The other three attacks also occurred in the last month and all of the children only had minor injuries.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife said to throw rocks at the animals to scare them away if they get too close.

There has not been a coyote-related fatality in California since 1981.
