Coyote pup rescued from water under SF's Pier 39
A small coyote, wet and probably very cold, was rescued from underneath Pier 39 in San Francisco Thursday.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A young coyote was saved from the San Francisco Bay Thursday after getting itself into a peculiar position.

Pier 39 sent ABC7 News video of the rescue.

It shows a crew using a net to get the animal out of the water and into their boat.

Rescuers say they likely got her out "just in time."

This was all in response to reports around 10:45 a.m. about a coyote pup in the area.

There was no information given on the animal's condition.
