Thursday, Corey Hamilton, South Portland's Animal Control Officer, went to Cape Elizabeth, where he ended up rescuing an abandoned baby coyote found by someone in their backyard.

It is such a rare occurrence that they didn't even know what to call a baby coyote, so they called it a "pup."

The cop who saw this little guy even thought for a minute, maybe his own German Shepard would raise it.

They called the Maine Warden Service and they turned it over to the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray ( I still call it the Gray Animal Farm).

The call of a coyote can be heard 3 miles away and the litters have usually 4-7 pups. Hopefully this little guy will make it to howl and be heard 3 miles away,
