NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- A second coyote attack at Rutgers University has police encouraging students to be on the lookout.

A man was walking near a parking lot on the Livingston campus when an aggressive coyote approached him and bit his pant leg from behind. He was not injured, and the coyote fled.

Piscataway police are urging residents of the area to keep an eye out for wild and stray animals, and report any incidents to police.

On Thursday, a man was bitten by a coyote who ran out of the woods and attacked him.

The Rutgers Police Department and the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife are continuing to investigate.
