[PICS] Coyote Pup Rescued By Massachusetts State Police
The “awwwwww” factor is strong with this one.
Massachusetts State Police Officer, Carlo Mastromattei was called to Revere Beach Parkway Sunday night for what a bystander said they believed was a “wounded dog.” When he arrived on scene he realized it wasn’t in fact a dog, but a tiny, scared coyote pup.
The Mama coyote was nowhere to be found, so what did the Officer do? According to WWLP: “…he contacted environmental, wildlife and local animal control officials, but no one was able to help. Lisa Cutting the owner of Ocean View Kennels in Revere decided to help Mastromattei secure the pup in a crate when he called.”
Officer Mastromattei took the little guy to care for him overnight at his girlfriends.
The news channel reports:”The next day Ocean View Kennel brought the pup to Tufts Wildlife in North Grafton where it was examined and determined to be healthy. The pup is going to be transferred to a wildlife specialist in the Berkshires where he will be rehabilitated and acclimated to life in the wild.”
