VIDEO: Coyote follows SF couple walking dog
Coyote sightings are not an unusual occurrence in the city, however, there appears to be more spotted around since the shelter-in-place order started. On Saturday a coyote was seen closely following a couple walking their dog in San Francisco's Embarcadero.
No further information was released about who the girl was with or what she was doing at the time of the attack.
