When You Don't Have a Gun, You Do What You Can #4

From RedNova News:
NORTHBOROUGH, Mass. - A grandfather out for a walk in the woods with his son and 4-year-old grandson got the better of an attacking coyote.

Arthur Cole, 76, encountered the female coyote near the Assabet River in Northborough on Wednesday afternoon, not far from Cole's home in a retirement community.

Cole, who was attacked from behind, held the coyote down for 15 minutes until firefighters and police officers, who'd been called by family members, arrived and killed the animal by asphyxiation, according to police Sgt. James Bruce. The dead coyote was taken to Tufts Veterinary School in Westborough to be tested for rabies.

Cole suffered multiple bites and had to get stitches.

'He is going to be fine,' said his son, Peter Cole.
