An aggressive coyote terrorizing a Texas community leaves at least one runner badly hurt.

Frisco Police released video of an officer scaring off a coyote earlier this month.

They spotted the animal stalking a runner, and managed to chase it off before the anyone was hurt.

The Dallas-area police department says coyotes have attacked at least four times since October.

One jumped on a 9-year-old.

Another attack Wednesday morning left a runner badly hurt.

That person is expected to be okay.

Texas Parks and Wildlife calls coyote attacks on humans "extremely rare.”
