Police Shoot, Kill Coyote That Attacked N. Attleboro Woman

NORTH ATTLEBORO (WBZ-AM) -- It's something Judy Place will likely never forget.

She was outside in her mobile home park in North Attleboro when a coyote slowly walked up to her--and then suddenly attacked, biting her leg. 

"I said, 'She's got me,'" Place told WBZ-TV. "I started to come to reality, looked down ... there was blood everywhere."

"So then they Tased her, both of them Tased, and nothing," she said. "She didn't move, she didn't even jolt."

Eventually, police were forced to shoot and kill the coyote.

Place is waiting for test results to see if the coyote had rabies.
