RIVERDALE - Seton Park in Riverdale was closed earlier this week after some people say they saw a coyote.

Last week a professional animal trapper was hired by someone in the area who says she saw a coyote in her backyard. Officials are not sure if that coyote was the same as the one that was spotted this week.

The animal trapper says he's worried that the coyote doesn't seem to show any fear of people. Henry Ruiz, the professional animal trapper, says a coyote can attack something smaller than itself, such as a small child or animal.
