When this baby coyote’s den caved in, construction workers came to the rescue. “While digging through a pile of bedrock to run through our rock crusher I disturbed a coyote den.

On first breaking it open 4 coyotes ran off.

Going back for another rock I uncovered this little guy,” writes David Bradley. “The den had collapsed around him trapping him 5 foot below ground.”

“Amazingly enough, even though I couldn’t possibly know that he was there, I didn’t hurt him and when I moved the next rock he was just ‘there’,” explains Bradley.

“I called one of my coworkers over to help dig him out by hand. Beautiful little blue eyed coyote pup. He didn’t’ seem to be afraid of us and actually looked as if he knew we weren’t going to hurt him.”

As soon as he was freed the pup ran off to join the rest of his family.
