Coyote Doggy-Paddles Across Cotuit Bay in Massachusetts

Brendan Doonan was quite surprised to spot a coyote swimming across the bay in Cotuit, Massachusetts, on January 10.

Doonan, an employee of Cotuit Oyster Company, Inc, took out his phone and recorded the coyote as it kept up a vigorous doggy-paddle across the water. The coyote appeared to be heading from neighboring the area of Grand Island in Osterville to Cotuit. The end of the footage shows the coyote safely reaching land and running into the woods.
