A Washington man was attacked by three coyotes in his own backyard in late December. Faron Scarberry, of Kent, Wash., was with his dog when the coyotes ambushed him.
“They were coming around the bush and I guess they were going after my puggle,” Scarberry told Q13Fox.com. ”One of them lunged up toward me and I kind of pushed it away with my hand and its front claws scratched my hand and wrist. Then one of them grabbed me by the pant leg and started shaking my leg, so I just started kicking and hitting at them to get them off of me, and they ran back under the fence.”
Here’s a video report of the attack from Q13Fox.com:
Scarberry was treated at the hospital for a bite and scratches. He also received 24 rabies shots in his leg and two in his hip.
