NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A coyote is back home in the wild after wandering into the bathroom of a downtown Nashville music venue.
Metro Nashville police posted an image of the coyote to its Twitter page on Monday, saying the animal was able to get inside Music City Center.
The animal ran up a ramp, made it into a showroom and some employees circled around him and guided him to the bathroom, according to the venue.
The department said police and animal control officers used catch poles to take the animal to an officer’s car and then set the coyote free in the woods.
WTVF reported that the coyote got in after running past a security checkpoint.
Central Precinct Officer Brenna Hosey says a coyote that had gotten into a Music City Center restroom Sun night was just scared. Using catch poles, Hosey & Metro Animal Control led the coyote to Hosey's police car. She drove her passenger to a wooded area and safely released it. pic.twitter.com/YIDWi3x5iz
