Wildlife officials say they have euthanized two adult coyotes after two small children were attacked at Goose Gossage Park.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Michael Seraphin says the coyotes were tracked to a den near Sinton Pond at Goose Gossage Park on Tuesday. The hunt continued late in the week for any remaining coyotes.

Seraphin says a 4-year-old girl was nipped "in the behind" but was not injured May 16. Another girl was attacked less than an hour later and suffered several gashes on her head that required stitches.

The coyotes' remains were sent to a lab in Fort Collins to be tested for rabies.
