|Coyote in NW Illinois|
From the Quad City Times:
Deputies were dispatched after receiving a call about two men being chased by a pack of wild coyotes at the Loud Thunder Forest Preserve in Illinois City, Illinois, according to Steven VenHuizen, chief deputy for the Rock Island County Sheriff's Office.Coyotes aren't known for attacking humans, but these canines apparently knew this guy was a bad one.
VenHuizen said Rice called dispatch using a false name to report being chased by coyotes. When deputies arrived on the scene, they recognized Rice by the description they had, and a pacemaker scar on his chest. Rice was taken into custody and transported back to the Muscatine County Jail around 8:15 p.m.
Rice has been arrested in Muscatine County three times since July on charges of theft, criminal mischief and burglary. A new charge was filed Thursday for escaping from custody, a class D felony.
