A Vermont woman is recovering after she said she was attacked by a coyote. The woman said she was walking with her young dog through a pasture behind her home in Panton, when she saw what she thought was a dog running across the field. She then realized that it was coyote and the animal attacked her 8-month-old puppy and then went after her, WCAX-TV reported. The coyote jumped up and tried to bite her and broke skin on her face, she said. She’s receiving rabies treatment as a precaution. Coyote attacks are not common, said Vermont Fish & Wildlife Game Warden Lt. Trevor Szymanowski. Since 1991, there have been four prior attacks in Vermont, including one involving a rabid animal, he said.
