Coyotes that have savaged joggers are still running loose across Frisco.

Frisco, Texas- Jogger Kimberlee Malin started out her morning as she always does- a brisk, early morning jog before the Texas heat catches on. However on October 26th, this calming task quickly turned into a nightmare when she was cornered by an aggressive coyote.

Being an avid runner, Kimberlee’s instinct upon contact with the confrontational animal was to flee. “I was just thinking, of course, in my head I was like, ‘I’ve done all this training, ran all these miles, I’m doing my first marathon next week and then I’m going to get attacked by a coyote,” Kimberlee explains. “Then I kind of started to panic and was like, ‘No, no, get away, get away.’ And then I just heard a huge, like, someone laying on their horn.” The car had its intended effect and successfully drove the snarling canine away.

However, Kimberlee Malin is not the only runner whose had the misfortune of encountering a hostile coyote. There have been three other recorded instances of attacks, causing the Frisco Police Department to urge citizens to take heed.

“The Animal Services Unit of the Frisco Police Department has been attempting to locate and catch the aggressive coyote but has been unable to,”  tweeted FPD. “The Frisco Police Department has also been in contact with other wildlife professionals and this type of behaviour is abnormal for coyotes.”

The lack of development in this case has lead to many Frisco citizens to become fearful of departing the house. On avoiding attacks, the Frisco Police Department said, “Consider altering your plans for walking or jogging in this affected area until the aggressive coyote is captured…consider carrying something that makes a loud noise to scare off the animal, do not allow domesticated animals to roam free outdoors.”
