    New Hampshire dad chokes coyote to death after it attacks his son

    New Hampshire dad chokes coyote to death after it attacks his son
    The same coyote bit a woman earlier on Monday, police said

    A Kensington, N.H., man is being hailed as a hero after he strangled a coyote that had attacked his son, only two hours after the same coyote bit a woman, according to New Hampshire police.

    “The coyote attacked a young child and the child’s dad went into protection mode and suffocated the coyote until it succumbed,” police wrote. “New Hampshire Fish and Game has the coyote and is taking it to be tested for rabies.”

    The man was bitten in the struggle and received rabies’ shots, according to police.

    Social media lit up with praise for the heroic father. Brittany Morgridge-Haslett wrote on Facebook, “I feel I need to meet this man! It would be an honor! Go dad!”

    It all started around 10 a.m., when Kensington Police blasted out a warning about a coyote attack in town. A 62-year-old woman told police she and her two dogs had been attacked.

    “The coyote was on her three-season porch and her two dogs had opened the sliding door and were attacked by the coyote,” police wrote on social media. “The two dogs retreated back into the house and the coyote attempted to get into the house. While the homeowner was fighting to keep the coyote out of the house she was bitten.”

    The woman later received the first series of rabies shots at Exeter Hospital. Her two dogs were also treated and received a rabies’ booster shot.

    A couple hours after the Kensington attack, the same coyote attacked the family walking on a trail in nearby Exeter, police said, forcing the dad to strangle it to death.
    I remember when the 'common wisdom' was that coyotes don't attack humans. Well, that was after many decades of coyotes being shot on sight. They certainly were where I lived. Running dogs also eliminated a lot of coyotes.

    As a result, coyotes stayed away from human places.

    Now, they are turning up in cities as well as towns and suburbs. If they get sick, some of them are getting sick around humans who have no defense (not gun-carriers). This is not a good thing.

    We hear them every night in Nevada and Arizona. A pack brazenly came through an encampment of 300+ RV’s on BLM land here at Quartzsite. I suspect they were hoping someone left their gator bait toy poodle out on a leash.

    We hear them constantly and see them often.

    The upside of not being able to shoot them from the porch is that they are systematically eliminating the wandering cat problems.

    If they wipe out the feral cats that would be a good thing.
