The 39-year-old star sprung into action to protect his dog Karen, resulting in a minor leg injury he also showed off on social media.
"Way too close for comfort. Glad my little sweetie is okay. Luckily it went our way today," he captioned his post detailing what happened. "Eeeeesh. Scary stuff."
"I was hanging out in this little back area over here, and Karen and I were just kinda hiking and throwing some bark to her down this hill when two coyotes ... like literally came after her," Van Winkle recalled in one video. "One almost got her leg. I had to slide down the mountain, literally screaming at the top of my lungs."
Van Winkle then warned dog owners to be more mindful and aware of their surroundings while walking their pets in the popular Los Angeles spot. "I just want to share with you, if you’re hiking with your dog up here at Griffith Park, be very careful," he added.
