A dayhike at Jones County's Hitchiti Experimental Forest turned harrowing for a man in late May: After a coyote attacked him, biting him in the leg, the hiker managed to kill it with his knife. The hiker was hospitalized after an adverse reaction to the rabies shot series, but has recovered. Officials confirmed the coyote was rabid--the fourth case of rabies so far this year in the district.
