Ontario Police Step In To Save Coyote Stuck On Highway

Poor thing.

A scary situation had a happy ending Monday, thanks to Ontario Provincial Police officers.

A coyote, who had jumped onto the Queen Elizabeth Way, was trapped between two barriers on the highway. Eight volunteers, including police and a few employees from a nearby office, rushed to rescue the animal.

Lincoln County Humane Society posted photos of the rescue on Facebook, saying the mission took 45 minutes but was a success.

The coyote was checked for injuries at the humane society, and was A-OK. It was then released back into the wild.

A rough day for the coyote, but it all ended well.

Watch the video above to see how the rescue happened.
