A 14-year-old male was bitten by a coyote in a neighborhood in western Upson County on Thanksgiving Day, according to a report from Upson County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident occurred around 10 a.m. at a residence on Sandy Brook Circle, a neighborhood off Burkett Road near its intersection with Pickard Road.

While cleaning the garage, the juvenile extended his left hand outside the door to pour a Coca-Cola onto the ground, the report stated. The coyote bit his hand and would not release until forcibly removed and hit in the head with a nearby pipe. The boy’s father shot and killed the coyote.
