GREENWICH - A Greenwich man is being treated for rabies after a coyote believed to be the one that bit him on Monday tested positive for the disease.

Jared Zuckerman was bitten after the animal approached his 2-year-old daughter while she played outside her grandfather's home in Rye Brook, NY.

Later that day, a coyote believed to be the same one attacked a teen.

The animal was shot and tests confirmed the disease.

The Westchester County Health Department says it's the first confirmation of rabies in a coyote in the county.
