I would hope none of us would ever have to face this, but, I was reading about an increase in attacks on residents and visitors to areas with large parks and even the outskirts of urban areas, where coyotes have attacked them and their pets and children.
Regarding Spyderco knives, what is a good everyday carry Spyderco that would be useful if one had to fend off or even kill a coyote or aggressive wild dog that was intent on attacking you? Endura? Native? I took a look at the Tatanka, and that would be superb, but it is a large and not something some may carry as an EDC Spyderco. Some would. What do you all say? Pacific Salt?
Here is a paper from a few years ago about the increase of coyote attacks in suburban areas on people.
