A string of coyote attacks has led Greensboro Police and Guilford County Animal Control to close down trails near Lake Brandt Marina. In a matter of two days, at least six coyote attacks happened and four people were bitten, according to witnesses who spoke with WFMY News 2 and Animal Control. https://bit.ly/38mnlpB
Mountain biker, David Broach, was attacked by a coyote on the Wild Turkey Trail. He escaped without being bitten or scratched.
Broach said he used his mountain bike as a shield and defended himself with pepper spray against the coyote, which he said charged at him unprovoked.
“I stopped on my bike, and as soon as that thing saw me, it started running towards me, and that was terrifying,” Broach said.
Remember the acronym SMART if you ever encounter a coyote: https://bit.ly/38mnlpB
