Coyotes attacked a Kent, Washington, man in his own backyard and he spent most of last Friday night in the emergency room.
“They come up toward my face, and I kind of blocked them and pushed them away, and that’s when the one grabbed me by the leg,” he said.
Scarberry spent most of the night in the emergency room – diagnosed with a coyote bite and scratches. He got 24 rabies shots in his leg and two in his hip.
“I love wildlife,” he said, “I like looking out the deck, looking at them. But when they’re starting to threaten the animals and people in the neighborhood, it’s gone a little bit overboard.”
