Rutland ma man relives backyard battle with ‘monster coyote

RUTLAND, Mass. – A Rutland man believes an “old technique” from his wrestling days in high school and a knife allowed him to turn the tables on a coyote in his backyard.

Brian Hutchins had just ventured out his back door to corral his chickens into their coop.

Close Encounters With Packs of Coyotes on the Rise

Officials believe the coyote may have chased a cat through the house’s window, Jeff Alexander of the Newton County Sheriff’s Office told ABC News today. The cat escaped unharmed, but the owner of the house couldn’t get the coyote out.
“I can only imagine,” how the family felt, Alexander said.

Once outside, a deputy shot and killed the coyote, the sheriff’s office said.
