Coyotes attack man

Recommended Posts

Time for him to get a rifle or shotgun I am thinking.

3 wild animals ambush man in backyard

Coyotes attacked a man in his backyard as he was spending time outdoors with his dog. Three of the animals unexpectedly bit and scratched Faron Scarberry outside his home in Kent. He related the details of his ordeal, according to a Dec. 31, 2012 report by The Oregonian. He said, "They come up toward my face, and I kind of blocked them and pushed them away, and that's when the one grabbed me by the leg."

As a result of the coyotes' attack, Scarberry spent a good portion of that evening in the emergency room being treated for scratches and one bite. In addition, he had to endure 26 painful rabies injections, two shots in his hip and 24 injections in his leg. Rabies is a virus that is often fatal. Coyotes are one of the most common animals that carry the virus. Aggressive behavior is one of the signs that a coyote may be infected with rabies. Surviving the virus requires immediate treatment, and it is customary for victims of coyote attacks to receive rabies shots even if the coyotes are not captured and confirmed to carry the virus.

There's a video on YouTube of a guy recording a coyote in BC. I won't post it here due to language in the video but it's titled Coyote Attack Best Footage Ever.

It sure gives an idea of a Coyote's posturing and a lack fear towards humans. Hopefully the guy in Oregon didn't get hurt too bad.
