ADVANCE, N.C. — A 9-year-old North Carolina lady says she went to analyze why her mom was screaming and encountered a coyote that attempted to make a snack out of her.
9-year-old Madilyn Fowler advised The Winston-Salem Journal she was sitting on her porch Thursday when she went to test on the noise. She stated the coyote latched on to her skirt, chased her and bit her 3 times, leaving deep gashes on her face and again.
Her mom, who had initially been alerted by barking canine, fended off the coyote by batting its snout. It hasn’t been positioned.
Fowler, who acquired 5 rabies pictures, says coyotes beforehand killed the household pony and stalked their canine.
Davie County Sheriff J.D. Hartman says the assault is uncommon. State wildlife officers have been alerted.
