Just because it looks like a puppy doesn’t mean it’s a puppy. The Cape Wildlife Center in Cape Cod posted to Facebook about a family that recently spotted a small canine wandering alone at the side of a busy road. The family took the animal home when they “mistakenly identified him as a lost puppy.” They soon started to suspect the “puppy” was actually a wild animal and contacted the rescue group, which confirmed the animal was an Eastern coyote pup. The center said the pup tested negative for rabies and will now be raised alongside another orphaned coyote pup until the animals are old enough to be safely released back into the wild.
