A Coyote Was Discovered In A Middle School Restroom Stall In California


Now this would be a nightmare.

We all know that coyotes can be fairly creatures, and us humans tend to keep our distance away from them.

Of course, as the old saying goes, “they’re more afraid of you than you are afraid of it,” so they tend to run away from you.

However, what do you do when you’re only 12-years-old and walk into your middle school’s restroom, only to find a coyote locking eyes with you?

This nightmare turned into a reality at Mission Middle School in Jurupa Valley, California last Monday, according to the Riverside County Department of Animal Services.

The coyote was discovered curled up in a stall inside one of the middle school’s restrooms, after school staff members saw it on campus, so it made its way into the restroom to hide.

Officer Will Luna of the Riverside County Animal Services and his team were called on the scene, and that’s when they were able to successfully remove the creature.

Animal Services Director Erin Gettis expressed her relief that the coyote was able to be safely removed:

“We are pleased that this incident was smooth and all the children were OK and we were able to get the coyote back to its more natural habitat.”

She continued:

“There are dedicated wildlife corridors and other open spaces, such as green belts, and these areas where animals live. Due to population adjacent to these natural, open spaces, we are going to have encounters.”

It truly is good to see the coyote was able to be safely removed off the property, and nobody was hurt during the process.

Face to face with a cornered coyote is nowhere you want to be.
