A three-year-old boy may have been attacked by a coyote on Chicago’s West Side.

Emeil Hawkins suffered bite wounds to his face back on October 27 near Madison and Mayfield.

Emeil’s mother and her boyfriend initially thought the animal was a German shepherd.

When Emeil tried to feed the animal a snack, it became aggressive and bit him.

Emeil has been treated for his wounds and is expected to be ok.

Since the attack, animal control workers have captured four coyotes at the park.

Coyote attacks on humans are rare.

    they didnt mention this dude breeds pitbulls in his house.

    easy to blame a bite on wild animals when you doin something you shouldnt be.

    Coyotes MAY have bitten the child and four were killed ?? Sounds very fishy to me…probably the dogs in the house and were they vaccinated ?? If not they would have to undergo rabies observation or impoundment at the owner's expense. Animal control checking on that ?? How come we are just hearing of this weeks later ???
