CHATHAM (CBS) – A teenager was bitten by a coyote this week while eating at a Chatham Beach.
It happened Monday at Harding’s Beach around 8 p.m.
16-year-old Jacob Packer was sitting on a blanket eating with a friend when the coyote approached and bit him on the right ankle.
“It just bit my right foot, and that’s what alerted me to it being there,” said Packer. “I don’t think it was biting me with the intent to hurt because it was a very fast and light, I don’t want to say nibble, but it was a quick little bite. And then when I jumped up, it quickly retreated away.”
While the two teenagers ran away, the coyote picked up some food and went into the dunes.
The town plans to put up coyote warning signs in the area.
