So an absolute nightmare scenario played out in Saugus on Tuesday, when a woman told police she was forced to climb a tree to avoid a pack of wild coyotes on an area trail.
It was a snowy Friday afternoon when Mona Giles headed over to her friend’s house in the small gated community of Whispering Pines in Pine Lake, Alta.
She popped in quick to grab her, when they both noticed some movement in the backyard.

“We were both shocked,” said Giles as they watched the coyote at first jump up to eat the tree’s fruit, and then decide it was going to make the climb.
The coyote can be seen carefully balanced on the thin branches as it makes it way to the top, all while having a nice evening snack.
She posted it to Facebook on Sunday, and it had more than 500,000 views by Thursday — and growing by the thousands every hour.
