A property owner in Tubac found this injured female coyote pup off a side road by the highway and called Tucson Wildlife Center late after hours. Our rescuer Justin drove all the way to Tubac in the night.
He captured the small coyote and brought her back to TWC. Our medical folks worked on the injured youngster until early in the morning taking care of her large wound. She is doing well and getting stronger every day. She is shy and we are very careful not to imprint her to become comfortable around people.
She now has a friend and playmate her age who was orphaned in the exact same way, after witnessing his mother being killed by a car.
When the wounds heal and they are older, they will be released together back to the wild.
