Reports of coyote scuffling with dogs, following hikers in Boise Foothills
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) —
A protective mamma coyote isn't messing around in the Boise Foothills.
Ridge to Rivers said Wednesday that it's received two reports of a coyote following hikers and tussling with dogs along Crestline Trail in the Boise Foothills trail system.
"Idaho Fish and Game suspects that there is likely a den nearby and that the response from the coyote is a result of that," Ridge to Rivers said on social media.
Officials are encouraging to keep dogs on a leash in the area or avoid Crestline.
