Wildlife experts now worry that aggressive coyote attacks in North Texas are a learned behavior.

Six weeks ago, the city of Frisco near Dallas captured a coyote known for attacking humans. They relocated the animal, thinking the problem was solved.

But Tuesday morning, a coyote attacked another jogger.

Now, police are working with federal and state wildlife agencies. They say they don't know if the real culprit has re-appeared or if this is "a learned behavior" other coyotes have picked up.

Police say the jogger attacked Tuesday managed to fend off the animal and was treated for minor injuries.
