Coyote wanders into Los Angeles classroom

Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Animal control officers were called to a California school when an intellectually curious coyote entered the building and wandered into a classroom.

Teachers and administrators at the Our Lady of Lourdes school in the Northridge neighborhood of Los Angeles said they were in the hallway waiting for students to arrive about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday when the coyote wandered into an eighth-grade classroom.

The coyote was safely removed from the building by animal control officers.

"We're considering a new mascot," the school joked in a Facebook post.

Wildlife expert Jennifer Brent said coyotes and other wild animals are wandering into urban areas in increasing numbers due to drought conditions caused by climate change.
