After at least four coyote attacks, Marines at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, are being advised against jogging in the Wallace Creek area of the base at night.
An official in the game warden’s office at the Marine Corps base told Marine Corps Times on Friday that the advisory was still in effect.
There have been four reported coyote attacks in vicinity of the II Marine Expeditionary Force Information Group area command, according to a Wednesday Facebook post. The most recent attack occurred at 4 a.m.
“Until further notice, please do not run in this area after dark until the animal can be removed,” the post read.
The Marines and sailors were bitten on their legs, but the injuries were not serious, Nat Fahy, a Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, spokesman told Military.com.
“They all received medical treatment … including rabies post-exposure treatment, which is standard protocol,” Fahy said.
I think the real take away here is that I am tougher and meaner than all the USMC in North Carolina. Evidence posted above. I rest my case.
