Southern Arizona man recovering following coyote attack
SUN CITY, Ariz. (AP) — A southern Arizona man is recovering after authorities say a coyote bit him in the leg.
The Arizona Daily Star reports the Sun City, Arizona, man was attacked Thursday while he was working on a bike or motorcycle in his garage.
Arizona Game and Fish Department spokesman Mark Hart says the department is looking for a coyote with a hairless tail, likely caused by mange.
Hart says the victim is in the Oro Valley Hospital being treated for rabies as a precaution.
No further information was available.
This is the third coyote-related episode in the Tucson area since February 13.
On Feb. 13, a coyote bit a 77-year-old man on his backyard porch. Later that day, a coyote leaped on an older woman protecting her dog at Arroyo Chico Park in midtown Tucson.
