Kid vs. Coyote

A coyote may not be nearly as scary as a wolf.  But it'd still be unnerving for ANYONE - especially a 9-year-old - to have a coyote suddenly start circling him while he was playing outside.

So what 9-year-old Tony Sandlin did was pretty smart:  He yelled for help, but he didn't panic; he kept the snowboard between himself and the animal, and he kicked out at the coyote when it got too close.  Eventually, he frightened off the creature.  And he got a pretty cool story to tell his friends.

If you or your friends have any stories like that, tell us about them here!
