Andrew Dickhage says he was attacked by a coyote in Colorado.
Boulder County, Colo. - A Colorado man is recovering from what state wildlife workers say was a very rare coyote attack.
Andrew Dickhage was walking to a bus stop early Monday morning in Niwot when he was attacked.
"I heard like a small ruffle in the brush," Dickhage said.
He shrugged off the sound, but the usual path would unveil the unexpected.
Coyotes, a family of them, were on Dickehage in an instant. He had a flash light, but before he knew it, "I looked down and it had a hold of my hand, and it wouldn't let go," he said.
In a haze, the 22-year-old battled the wild animals. One after another they lunged.
