WORTH, Ill. -- A series of reported coyote attacks have shut down a south suburban park.
The question remains though, is a coyote responsible or a dog? County officials say that's not confirmed. For now, the park is closed, again.
Back in April, 16-year-old Christopher Rumoro believes he was attacked by a coyote near the Worth Waterfalls.
He was the first of a series of reported coyote encounters in the area.
In the most recent incident, a man reportedly scared off the animal from his young son.
Now the popular park has been closed for the second time in the past few months.
The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District hired a professional wildlife trapper, though officials with Cook County Animal Control say they have found no evidence that coyotes are responsible.
