Every once in a while we like to take a break from exposing terrible people, and instead focus on highlighting a hero in the community. This week’s hero of the week is Ian O’Reilly from Kensington, NH for what he did to save his own crotch fruit on MLK Day.
A New Hampshire man fought off and eventually killed a coyote that attacked his family Monday near Judes Pond on the Exeter-Kensington line, local police departments confirmed to Boston 25 News. Exeter Police received a call around 11 a.m. Monday morning that detailed how one father choked the coyote to death after the animal attacked his family on the trail near the pond. A sergeant with New Hampshire Fish & Game added that the incident began when the coyote attacked one of the father’s three children, who he and his wife were walking with along the trail. That father – who officials later identified as Ian O’Reilly of Kensington, N.H. – was able to kick the coyote away from the 2-year-old child before choking the animal to death.
“There was no interest in it going away. [I] ultimately had to make the decision to become the aggressor and jumped on it, attacked it and [got] it to the ground,” O’Reilly said. “When I was able to get on top of it, I put my hand on its snout so it wasn’t able to attack me. There was quite a bit of snow on the ground, so I shoved the face into the snow and then eventually was able [to] put my hand on its snout and expire it through suffocation. Ultimately one hand on its windpipe and one hand on its snout did the trick.”
O’Reilly was apparently bitten in the arm and chest by the coyote. The child involved was also bitten, though the animal did not break the child’s skin due to the snowsuit he was wearing at the time. Since the incident, O’Reilly has already received his first round of rabies shots; he’ll have four more follow-up visits with doctors for more.
The father of three said he was running off of adrenaline and instinct when the nearly 10-minute long struggle ensued. He added that he did not take any pleasure in killing the animal, but believed he had no choice but to protect his wife and kids, given the coyote’s behavior.
Police in Kensington say that other town residents had issues with that same coyote during the day. They say that one person photographed the coyote as it tried to attack a car around 8:40 a.m. Shortly after, police report that Pat Lee, a 62-year-old Kensington woman, had a run-in with the animal 15 minutes later, when the coyote tried to attack her dogs on Hemlock Road in the town. Lee says that the dogs chased the coyote in their yard after one of the dogs was able to open the porch door. Lee then closed the door on the coyote’s head after managing to get her dogs inside. The animal escaped before its encounter with O’Reilly sometime later. New Hampshire Fish & Game say that the same coyote also went after a jogger and her dog, though they did not mention where that incident occurred.
“He did not take pleasure in killing the animal,” is the most bad ass quote from this story. Ian O’Reilly guy might not look like the kind of guy who will choke a coyote to death:
But don’t test him, and don’t mess with his kids. He will end you with his bare hands. Toxic masculinity saves lives. When men act like men dangerous predators are eliminated and delicious children live to see another day.
I realize that this will be controversial, but I feel the same way about coyotes that I do about sharks – I don’t mind if they exist, but if they come near us they need to be eliminated. And spare me the “we’re building on their land” nonsense. That’s loser mentality. We are man. We take what we want, and we preserve plenty of natural habitats for coyotes to play in and feast on scrumptious animals that aren’t our pets. They go over there, we are over here.
Coyotes also are unnecessary. If they went extinct tomorrow the food chain would continue on like nothing happened.
“But they help control the deer and squirrel population.”
Newsflash – hunting and birds of prey do the same thing. What they really control is the pet population, and for that they need to be eliminated from our area.
This coyote was a menace that was terrorizing the town. It went after pets, cars, and high protein toddlers. Rabid coyotes think they can do whatever they want and we’re not going to fight back because they know PETA has us by the balls. But one father reached his breaking point and decided that it was time to choke a bitch. He not only risked his own safety in order to save the life of his child, he also potentially saved the lives of lot of pets and other delicious children, and for that he is our TB Daily News hero of the week.
