Grocery Store Worker Bit by Coyote

Coyote Attacks Man in Lafayette Incident

Lafayette, CA (December 15, 2020) – A grocery store worker was bit by a coyote in Lafayette. The incident happened on December 15 while the man was taking a break from his job at Diablo Foods.

The worker was on break behind the grocery store when he was bit in the leg by the coyote. The attack was unprovoked. The man and several co-workers were able to chase off the coyote.

This was the fourth coyote attack in the San Francisco Bay Area since April. At least two of the attacks were by the same coyote. A Fish and Wildlife official took DNA swabs of the bite wound as well as samples of the employee’s pants. They were sent to a lab in Sacramento to determine if this was the same coyote that had attacked previously.

On December 4, a man was bit in the leg by a coyote at Campolindo High School, less than 2 miles away from Diablo Foods. Fish and Wildlife officials trapped and killed four coyotes near Campolindo High School since the attack. Within 24 hours of pulling the traps, the grocery store worker was bit.
