A coyote attacked and severely injured a jogger in the North Texas neighborhood of Frisco on Wednesday, Nov. 27. The jogger had to undergo surgery for neck injuries and is now in stable condition. Had it not been for a policeman on the lookout, the jogger in the video above would have likely suffered a similar fate.
