Animal Control had probably one of their more unusual calls Monday afternoon, when they were dispatched to a Kennewick home and found a young, scared coyote.

Authorities say the homeowner found the young pup curled up next to a large houseplant. Apparently it had found it's way in through a back door.

The animal was obviously separated from it's mother, as animal officials said it was too young and small to be on it's own.  The coyote was trapped and will be released in a sagebrush area known to be populated by them.  They say the mother will howl for the pup, and if it hears it, will be able to relocated each other.
