Two coyotes killed after children bitten on Calif. playground.

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. - A boy and girl suffered minor wounds Tuesday after a coyote attacked them on an elementary school playground.


The 8-year-old girl was bit on the head and neck and the 7-year-old boy on his back and arm during their lunchtime recess at Truman Benedict Elementary School, authorities said.

The children were taken to San Clemente Hospital and Medical Center where a nursing supervisor said they were treated and released.

A federal tracker from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services division was called to the scene and shot and killed two coyotes after luring them from a nearby hillside.

A sad story, I feel sorry for the kids. I wonder if the coyotes the tracker killed were the problem coyotes or just two dumb ones. Sounds to me like a good reason to have a coyote hunting contest in that area .
