Police said the teen and a friend were having their meal on blankets near another lot in Harding Beach at 8 p.m. A coyote came and bit the teenager at the ankle. Police said the teen and friends fled, and the coyote picked up some food and went into the dunes. The city will install coyote-specific advisory signage in areas of Harding Beach. Police are also investigating reports of people who feed coyotes. The public is reminded not to feed coyotes and to keep their distance from animals.
