Like, carry a gun in coyote country.
“I hear this barking and it just sounds like you’re a normal dog. So I looked behind me and I said to you, OK, there’s a dog up there. And I’m like, it’s not really dog, is it?” Lindsey said.
“And next thing I know the coyote is coming from the rocks all the way down down to the beach.”
Duke and Lindsey start walking down the beach while she is still calling for Duke to continue moving forward away from the coyote.
Lindsey said, “We got about 10 yards away and I look over and the coyote is parallel with me, probably about six feet away. And that’s when I realized he wasn’t necessarily after me. But he was stalking Duke.”
Lindsey said this went on for about five minutes and a good distance down Asilomar. She kept an eye over her shoulders until the coyote was out of her sight.
“I watched him all the way down to the other end of the rocks and he actively stood there standing his ground, barking, not even howling, just barking like your average dog,” Lindsey said.

A girl, “quite literally running for her life, came tearing off the path into the street dragging her dogs along with her,” Elyse said in a post on a social media site.
“She was trying to get away from coyotes that were chasing her.”
In trying to help the young woman flee the pack of coyotes — there were as many as five of them, she said — Elyse yelled at her to walk on the ocean side of 17 Mile Drive while Elyse walked on golf course side, since, at that point, the coyotes seemed to be coming after her. “They circled us and came way too close,” said Elyse, who estimated the wild animals got about 10 feet from her. After a few minutes, the other woman and her dogs were picked up by someone in a car and the coyotes left the area.
