Teachers trapped the wild canine in the bathroom until traffic deputies could help remove it
A coyote created quite the commotion when it snuck into a school in Berkeley County, South Carolina, and took refuge in a bathroom.
The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office Community Action Team said the coyote entered Cane Bay Elementary School during student drop-off.
According to Count On News 2, teachers trapped the coyote in the bathroom and traffic deputies then worked with school staff to remove the animal without incident.
“I overheard on the radio where we had a couple of deputies who were trying to wrangle an animal at the school,” said Sgt. Matthew Woodall with the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office. “They had it blocked off as best they could with anything to kind of keep it from getting out. But I think it was more scared about being there than anything or worried about trying to harm anybody.”
The coyote was turned over to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources unharmed.
