Rescued Coyote
updated: Dec 14, 2013, 12:30 PM

By Julia Di Sieno of Animal Rescue Team

Animal Rescue Team would like to thank our County Animal Control officers, as well as Union Pacific for helping a Coyote that was struck by a train on Tuesday, December 10th on the Gaviota Bridge. We believe the coyote was struck again by another passing train, and assumed deceased. On Wednesday evening another call came in that the struck Coyote was still alive. Thursday morning AC officers responded to the Gaviota Bridge, with help from Union Pacific employee's in an attempt to locate the mortally wounded animal. Due to major injures the Coyote was dispatched humanly.

A reminder to all of Santa Barbara County, if you or someone finds or locates ANY injured, orphaned, displaced, or suffering wildlife, please call Animal Rescue Team, Inc. 24/7 rescue hotline. No rescue is ever denied for our native wildlife in need.

This coyote was hit by a car on the Santa Barbara side of highway 154 2 months ago. After being treated by Dr. Holmes at La Cumbre Animal Hospital, our team picked up the injured coyote rehabbing him for a week until he was ready to be released back into the wild.
