A coyote bit a 25 year old woman’s hand Tuesday as she jogged by a pack being fed by human visitors.
“The coyote was responding to feeding by other park patrons,” park ranger Albert Torres said. “The coyote expected to get fed.”
Coyotes have become bolder over the past few months because people have been feeding them, which is “actually changing their behavior,” Torres said.
Humans “are not doing the coyotes a service” by doing so, he said. “There’s plenty for them to eat in the park.” [KNBC]
The woman wasn’t seriously injured by the bite, but I’m hoping her pace has seriously improved.
