GROVELAND, Mass. (AP) - Groveland police are warning residents to be on the lookout for an aggressive and possibly rabid coyote that has already bitten one man.

The Eagle-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1xRcHOg ) reports that police responded to two coyote encounters on Monday.

In the first, a man was entering his home and holding his 4-year-old daughter when a coyote walked up to them and bit the man before running off. Police say the man required emergency medical treatment and was evaluated at a local hospital. The girl was unharmed.

A short time later, another homeowner reported that a coyote approached him in an aggressive manner. The resident had to kick the animal several times before it left the area.

In an automated 911 call Tuesday, police also warned residents protect their pets.
