That's no pet - stray coyote pup turned over to Bartlett police

A Bartlett resident spotted a cute canine abandoned along the side of a busy road Thursday morning and, fearing for its safety, brought the cuddly creature to the village's police department.

Turns out, that young dog wasn't a pet at all, but instead a baby coyote that had apparently gotten separated from its litter.

Bartlett police sent a tweet, along with an adorable photo, about the coyote pup Thursday morning, noting that he was "quite the attraction" at the police station.
