Boy describes how he fought off attacking coyote - Local - Cape Breton Post:
"The animal was quiet at first but began snarling and growling as it jumped on top of him and tried to bite him.
“It got halfway on top of me so I grabbed it by the neck and kneed it in the stomach a couple of times and then it just backed off me. When I got up, I was going to kick it in the ribs, and then it just ran off into the woods.”
The attack left him with a small scratch above his right knee and a larger one on his thigh that bled for about 30 minutes after he made it back home."
