One wily coyote appears to be causing fits at Patriots Point.
A coyote slipped out of the marsh reeds just after midnight Monday and nipped the foot of a woman sitting in the sand down by the water at Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina -- the first report of a person being bitten in a long string of reports since the feral canines began tormenting the tourist area in late May.
Not only that, it didn't go away. It came back out a few times, and witnesses kicked at it and threw sand to make it go away.
The woman "was, of course, shocked. But she's OK," said Oliver Rooskens, Charleston Harbor and Resort Marina general manager. The woman declined to be taken to a hospital, according to the police report and Rooskens. She has since checked out of the hotel at the end of her stay, Rooskens said.
Mount Pleasant Police think they know this suspect well.
