Be Aware of Coyotes After Attack Along Bridge Drive Pedestrian Path

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - Regional Police are advising the public to be aware of coyotes after an attack on Wednesday.

 

A woman was jogging along the Bridge Drive pedestrian path with her Labrador Retriever around 1:00 pm, when the coyote approached from behind and went after the dog. The woman was able to scare the coyote away and she was not injured. However, the dog suffered minor puncture wounds to its tail.

 

If you encounter a coyote, you're encouraged to respond aggressively by waving your arms, throw rocks and sticks to scare it away, carry a whistle to startle the animal and shout in a loud deep voice. Do not turn away or run as this may trigger a predatory instinct and encourage the coyote to chase after you.
