A North Carolina family's chance encounter with a coyote went from  wondrous to worrisome when the angry creature turned its sights on them.

John Schroter and his two teenage daughters were driving home in the  town of Huntersville on Saturday evening when they spotted the coyote  scratching at a fence.

Hoping to get a better look at the animal, they pulled over to the side  of the road and quickly regretted letting their curiosity get the better  of them.

Rather than retreat from the attention of the family in their car, the  coyote turned towards the vehicle and began approaching it in a menacing  fashion.
