McKinney Animal Control is increasing its education efforts by teaching residents how to co-exist with coyotes.

McKinney Animal Control is increasing its education efforts by teaching residents how to co-exist with coyotes.

On Jan. 29, a coyote reportedly bit a man who was jogging near Eldorado Parkway and Tangerine Lane, according to Frisco Police Department. The man was able to fend off the coyote and was taken to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

At least five other incidents where a coyote was aggressive toward a person have been reported near the same area. The previous incidents occurred between October and December. Frisco police in December announced a coyote believed to be responsible for the attacks was removed from the area.

There is no way to determine whether the coyote caught in December did attack people or if multiple coyotes are responsible for the attacks, police spokesman Radd Rotello said.

Frisco Animal Services launched an interactive coyote map in January where residents can report sightings of coyotes. Residents are urged to call 911 first if they encounter an aggressive coyote.

Police also encourage the following safety tips:

  • Carry something that makes a loud noise while jogging to scare off an animal.

  • Do not allow pets to roam free outside.

  • Do not approach or feed wildlife.

  • Keep trash secure and do not leave it outside over night.
