NYC Coyote News: Trapped in Tribeca
The wildlife news just keeps on coming.
A coyote was caught in Tribeca this morning, where she has apparently been eluding capture, since first being sighted in the area yesterday. Police shot her with a tranquilizer dart, placed her in a large animal carrier and took her away. Yes, her. The adventurous coyote is a girl.
AnimalTourism.com reports that the coyote may be quarantined for ten days to be sure it has not contracted rabies from our resident mad raccoons, after which it may be released into the Bronx. Coyotes are well established in the Bronx. Note “may be quarantined” and “may be released”; nothing is yet confirmed.
We wish the coyote the best. May she be healthy and rabies-free, and may the Bronx coyotes accept her into their territory. The Central Park coyote has been living with us for almost two months. If the captured coyote is the Central Park coyote, what a run she’s had!Explore posts in the same categories: coyotes, In the City, March, Wildlife/Natural History
