Girl gets rabies shot after being bitten by a coyote in the park

Authorities say a 5-year-old girl has a rabies shot after being bitten by a coyote on an Arizona park.

Arizona Game and Fish officials say a coyote was later found and killed in the vicinity of Scottsdale’s Thompson Peak Park and her body sent to a lab for testing.

The girl was bitten as she held a granola bar, sitting on a slide. She did not know the coyote was under the slide.

After biting the girl, the coyote chased her and family members until they were able to put in their car.
