A 66-year-old Belvidere man was attacked by a coyote Wednesday morning while walking his two beagles on Columbia Trail, police said.

The man, his sister and another adult were walking a total of six beagles on the trail when the coyote appeared on the trail and began to attack one of the dogs, Detective Paul Williams of the Morris County Park Police Department said. 

The man then intervened in the fight and the coyote bit him on his back, buttocks and right calf, Williams said.

The man was able fight back with a stick and incapacitate the animal, he said. 

Two officers with the Morris County Park Police arrived on the scene shortly after the attack and were able to euthanize the coyote by shooting it, Williams said. 

Williams said the coyote is believed to have been rabid, but the animal has been sent out to the state Department of Environmental Protection for testing in the next 48 hours.

Strange behaviour, they usually keep well away from people. We have a Timber Wolf in city limits, showed up last night, I seen him, he about 5 ft to top his head, and pitch black.
