Wounded, possibly rabid coyote wanders through downtown Tucson, Arizona in broad daylight. John Patrick reports.

(KVOA) Coyote sightings in Tucson, Arizona seem to be getting more and more common but Thursday's run-in was downright dangerous especially for those like Bobby Rabert walking through Himmel Park.

"He ran right by me, I thought how strange, he is the same size as my dog," said Rabert

Tucson Police Department first got a call around 7 a.m. of a coyote threatening people walking their dogs through midtown Tucson. One woman received minor injuries after pulling her dog back from the menacing coyote and getting bit by another dog in the process.

TPD did their best to corral the coyote, however, he led officers on a lengthy chase from Mansfield Park, through the University of Arizona Medical Center campus and all the way into the Sam Hughes neighborhood.
