CARRBORO, N.C. — A Carrboro police officer scared off a coyote that was chasing a man and his dogs on Old N.C. 86 early Tuesday morning.

Officer W. Horton wrote in a report that he was driving on Old N.C. 86 near the Hogan Farm when he saw what he thought was a stray dog standing in the grass next to the road looking at what he thought was a jogger and his dogs, but when he got closer he realized it wasn't a dog at all.
