    NH Father Kills Coyote With Bare Hands After Attacks In 2 Towns

    This would have been frightening!

    NH Father Kills Coyote With Bare Hands After Attacks In 2 Towns

    KENSINGTON, N.H. (CBS) – With no work or school Monday, the O’Reilly’s brought their three kids to Jude’s Pond in Exeter for a family hike. It ended when Ian O’Reilly wound up in a life and death struggle with a coyote that was very likely rabid.

    With coyote bites on his arm and chest, O’Reilly said he had no choice but to fight.

    “There was no running away, it would not allow us to run away,” O’Reilly said. “It was very much the aggressor.”

    ...As his wife called 911, Ian O’Reilly strangled the coyote during several minutes that seemed surreal at best.

    That could have been so much worse. Glad the dad prevailed.

    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    I have long held that any man in solid physical condition and a good fighter can kill most dogs in a fight. The thing a man must do is to be super aggressive, willing to take hits (bites), and know where to attack the animal to kill it. Dogs have some definite weak areas which when very aggressively attacked can bring about their death. The one thing a man must keep from happening is being knocked down and put on the defensive.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    I have always thought the same thing, and I agree. But you would have to keep his mouth away from your neck and head. And be super aggressive like you said. But I pray I never have to find out. I imagine a 60 to 80 lb dog would really cause blood loss on you during that struggle. With lots of puncture wounds and torn flesh. In my mind, though, when you start talking about dogs north of 80 lbs, then it becomes more iffy as to whether or not I could prevail. It would probably make a difference depending upon whether my son was with me or not. If I was trying to protect him, I would probably have a better chance.

    Knew a fella who was attacked at his front door coming home from working a double shift at night by a huge raccoon....jumped out of the bushes on to him in the dark....he killed it bare hands and was stricken by both rabies and distemper......he was laid up for some time but recouped.
    Why did the Moron buy a ladder...... he's takin' his case to a higher court.

    Who was it that said, " I wasn't planning on going for a run today.....then the Game Wardens came out of nowhere".

    Yes. Really savage super aggression will be your friend in such an event. And yes too as far as large dogs. That's what I meant by most dogs. Large dogs, which might be aggressive and well trained dogs, think Shepherds and Dobermans would be a real challenge. A neighbor or mine has two English Mastiffs, each weighing over 200 pounds. That would NOT be something would want to tangle with unarmed.

    The soft spots on dogs are their lower abdomen, genitals, ribs, neck/throat, and eyes. You would have to attack quickly with well-aimed kicks and punches to the abdomen, genitals, and ribs to disable the animal before you can get a good chance to crush their throat.

    Now don't get me wrong... I love dogs... good dogs. But I have no compunction about injuring or killing one if it presents a danger to me. My first job out of high school was a letter carrier with the US Post Office and I quickly learned about dogs. Love the good ones, disdain the bad ones.

    In 2007, my younger daughter and her husband were having a new home built and my wife and I would occasionally stop by to see how it was coming along. On one visit a mangy looking raccoon was slowly edging towards the house, mouth breathing and making a slight hissing sound. Definitely rabid animal so I got my wife back in the truck quickly and alerted my daughter to be careful when visiting her new home site.

    I’d rather have to strangle a rabid coyote than a rabid skunk
    If you use JP-8, then it's technically not waterboarding

    And folks were calling in this morning to local radio feeling bad for the yote and the fact it suffered 10min while being suffocated by the Father. Several people were bit and will require rabbi shots along with injured pets. Trapping and hunting of yotes is coming under attack here in NH as it is in other states.
