It's wild out there

No, the title of this post does not refer to the rugged Adirondack terrain. Nor does it refer to the circus in Albany.

I'm talking about the wild animals roaming through human habitats in... New York City.

The Associated Press is reporting that another coyote has been spotted in Manhattan:

"The sighting Wednesday was the fourth in Manhattan this year. Three coyotes were spotted on the campus of Columbia University last month, and earlier this month, one was seen in Chelsea. The coyote headed south on Broadway after trotting around the circle outside the tunnel. It was later spotted on Thomas Street. Officers chased the animal with a noose on the end of a stick and even loaded up a tranquilizer dart gun. But the coyote eluded them by darting under a gate and disappearing down Church Street."

  1. Coyote a fine example of a opportunistic apex, carrion feeder. as a former resident of ulster
    co, i can attest to the swelling numbers of
    coyoties resideing in cities(yes they'r moving
    in)recently a pair was discovered in L.A. living in a abandoned house (default on morgage?) the locals ignore the new neighbors, probably a mistake as the coyotes family will demand food and equal hunting rights to resident pets.
