Wake Forest officials are warning residents of possible coyotes on the prowl after a man taking out his trash says he was attacked by one. The unidentified resident was taking out his garbage late Wednesday night when the animal, which tested positive for rabies, approached and began attacking him. The man says he kicked it to try and get it to stop, but it kept going, stopping only after he threw the trash can at it. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission says that coyote attacks are extremely rare because they’re generally wary around humans, but we kinda thought they’d be rare because why the heck are there jungle cats in Wake County? What’s less rare, the commission warns, is coyotes attacking household pets. So hide yo cats, hide yo dogs, because they’re getting everybody out here.
