SEBASTIAN, Fla. — A Florida wildlife rescue team tracked down and freed a coyote that had a plastic pretzel jar stuck over its head for nearly four days.
“It was just a flood of adrenaline and immediate urgency to catch her this time, knowing this would be her last day if we didn’t,” Wild Florida Rescue’s Crystene Prokop, 30, told the website.
Wild Florida co-founder Baleen “Heather” Pepe-Dillon said via email to TCPalm that the coyote was dehydrated and thin and had some infected areas near its ear and jaw, likely from the container.
The animal was taken to Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter for rehabilitation and medical care, she said.
