Employees at Dat Dog were about to close up when something unexpected showed up – a coyote. A wild coyote can into a restaurant on Frenchmen Street, and was detained by an animal trapper later on.
At first, the fate of the coyote was uncertain, and there were thoughts of euthanizing the animal, however, Dat Dog came up with a solution in Shepherd, who resides in Benton. Shepherd is licensed to care for all kinds of mammals, so the coyote got really lucky! Other coyotes in the area are not so lucky, and many have to be removed. Watch the video about the coyote below!
