SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Sac State had a surprise guest on campus on Thursday: a curious coyote.
The coyote strolled among the students probably after wandering away from the nearby American River Parkway.
“I’ve never seen a coyote before and I thought it was a dog!” one student said in a video posted by the school.
Experts say coyotes aren’t typically a threat to humans, but people should avoid approaching or cornering the wild animals.
Sac State officials say a variety of wild animals have paid a visit to campus over the years, including turkeys, skunks, squirrels, rattlesnakes and even mountain lions.
It’s unclear if any roadrunners were on campus.
