Toronto police were called to the park at 2945 Bayview Ave. for reports of a coyote that was “aggressive and has attacked civilians.”

The extent of the damage was not immediately known.

Members of the Toronto Animal Services went to the scene along with the Toronto Police Emergency Task Force. A statement from the city of Toronto said they “have been in the area all day today and worked diligently to catch the coyote and will resume operations (Monday).

“The coyote is still at large,” the statement added, “and the city is advising residents of the area to stay away from the park and exercise caution in the adjacent areas.”

The city’s statement said that coyotes generally do not pose a danger to humans and that a bite to a human is abnormal behavior.
