DNA Results Reveal ‘Mystery Animal’s’ True Identity

The DNA results are in and team “coyote” wins the prize for determining the true identity of a so-called “mystery” animal that was rescued in January by a kind-hearted woman in Pennsylvania. Christina Eyth rescued the coyote after she saw him outside in the cold – she initially thought that the animal was her neighbor’s dog, but realized that wasn’t the case when she got closer.

The rescued coyote was taken to Wildlife Works Inc., for care and while there, a DNA sample was obtained to determine if it was a dog or a coyote. Until the results came back, the wildlife rehab facility was treating the ailing animal, who was malnourished and suffering from a skin condition.

Before the DNA results came back, and before the treatment was complete, the coyote made his great escape – busting out of a cage, and through a window, never to be seen again.

The escape led most people to the conclusion that the “mystery animal” was indeed a wild animal – a coyote to be exact. And this week, when the DNA results came back, those suspicions were confirmed. Wildlife Works updated curious Facebook followers as soon as the results were received, writing:

Wildlife Works-Mount Pleasant

The results are in! Our “mystery animal” DNA sample came back, 100% coyote!
