Coyote Attacks Man for Boonie
We knew boonies were in demand, but not by the animal kingdom.
According to Steve Byland, a coyote ambushed him and wound up taking a bite out of his tactical wardrobe. The photographer and writer sent us an e-mail detailing the incident.
I thought you might be interested to know that I recently lost my favorite hat (one of yours) after being attacked by a coyote in Yellowstone National Park. The animal grabbed my hat and ran off with it, putting it down into its den. I am going to be writing a magazine article about the incident (of course, I would LOVE to say that you offered to replace my favorite hat).
Lucky for us, Byland captured this event in pictures, which made one of our coworkers exclaim: “That dingo’s got your boonie!”
A fully recovered Byland drove 50 miles back to the crime scene a day later and was unable to recover the Propper Asian Tiger Boonie. Being just as clever as that coyote, he wrote to our sister site BDU.COM seeking a replacement. And we happily sent him one free of charge.
So, if you’re ever in Yellowstone and spot a coyote bouncing around the brush in a boonie, you’ll know exactly where he shops.
