Aggressive coyotes reported on Boulder Creek Path

BOULDER — Wildlife officials have received at least two reports of coyotes acting aggressively toward people on the eastern portion of the Boulder Creek Path in Boulder County in the past week.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill says on Monday, a woman walking a poodle reported that a coyote “came after her.” The Daily Camera reports that on Thursday, a cyclist was chased on the path on the north side of the creek, just east of Foothills Parkway.

Boulder urban wildlife coordinator Val Matheson says coyotes may be chasing cyclists in the area due to curiosity, being territorial, or because someone on a bicycle has been feeding them, but the exact reason isn’t known.
