Possible Coyote With Rabies

Brian Akers and a group of neighbors were standing outside when a sickly looking coyote approached them.

They tried to run the coyote off by chasing it away with a four-wheeler, but the coyote wasn’t startled.

After the coyote lunged and attempted to bite a neighbor, Mr. Akers shot and killed the animal.

The coyote was taken to the Bland County Health Department and is now undergoing testing for rabies.
