According to ilovemydogsomuch, a group of construction personnel on a job site noticed a strange wailing coming from a near slope.
They were startled to see a baby coyote trapped after the den crumbled around him when they arrived. His family made it leave alive, but he was left behind for the sake of survival. He was completely alone and terrified.
Two men snatched up their shovels and gloves. They weren’t going to let the puppy d.i.e. in those situation. With the most bright blue eyes they had ever seen, the infant coyote stared up at them. He was yearning to be let free, but he knew it wouldn’t be easy.
The body of the coyote was immersed entirely. The baby coyote put out the sweetest tiny whimper as one man tried to dig him out as much as could. He was very overwhelmed and unsure whether he would make it out alive. The hips of the coyote were pushed in tight even as one man continued to dig.
They needed to develop a new strategy. A rescue like this is dangerous because this is a wild animal. Even if he bit them, the soldiers would not give up. While one guy videotaped the rescue, the other put down the shovel and cleared the soil from around the coyote’s waist with his hands.
The man was able to pull him out by the nape of his neck when enough dirt had been brushed away. The coyote was ecstatic. They didn’t want to let him leave yet, though. They needed to make sure he wasn’t hurt. If he couldn’t go back to his family on his own, the guys planned to take him to a vet hospital.
They could see that he was OK when he released the coyote. “I suppose he was better off than he was before,” the other man even claims. The newborn coyote then ran towards his family. He was reunited with his mother less than a mile away and was overjoyed.
While we never recommend undertaking something like this on your own, we are thankful for these two kind and daring guys. Please contact your local authorities if you witness an animal in distress like this. You must see the rescue yourself! And the baby coyote is so adorable! Check it out by scrolling down.
