Man suffers injuries while fighting off 3 attacking coyotes
DENVER — A Longmont man was attacked by a pack of coyotes while he walked to work early Monday morning near Niwot.
Three coyotes attacked him and he had to receive treatment for numerous bloody gashes after he was able to fight them off.
He says he has been walking to work since his vehicle broke down.
Wildlife officials say they found two of the three animals and put them down. The experts say their aggressive behavior meant it was likely they would attack someone again.
Coworkers say they will give the man a ride to work in the future, so he doesn’t have to face a similar situation again.
