A coyote bit a man in a bank parking lot in Swampscott, Massachusetts, Monday morning, police said.

The man was on his cellphone outside the Santander Bank on Paradise Street when the coyote bit his calf about 6:15 a.m., according to Swampscott police. He was able to scare the animal off into the woods with a stick.

Swampscott Animal Control was looking for the coyote, police said.

The injured man said he would go to the hospital himself; he would likely be treated for rabies as a precaution, since the animal can't yet be tested for themselves, according to police.
