Of course the first impulse they have is to kill it, suspecting raccoon rabies.....

Don't release it upstate please, we already have a shiat load of those damnable things.

That last picture is why that Coyote will die.

Those things get shot on sight around here. They do bad things to livestock and pets.

That coyote is really a crazy clown.

Don't care much for coyotes. Little f**kers without a single redeeming quality.

Sure they do.

They eat cats and those little rat dogs in people's back yards.

Um, I have an idea natureboy doesn't know how rabies tests are done.

Yes it sucks but well rabies is running rampant and it ain't just gonna go away because we throw it a lolly and ask it to walk on.

Frolicking? I'll need to get some pictures of the ones that eat my garbage. Quite a bit more dynamic than this set.

I admire their persistence when hunting for prey. Particularly fast ground living members of the cuckoo family.

Big deal, I have 3 that play with my dog's toys in my back yard. Sometimes they steal them, sometimes they bring OTHER dog toys into my yard.

Not according to the Daily Mail! The article there said the graffiti artists drove the coyote to the YMCA and the mugger bought him a new pair of Pumas at Foot Locker.

Of course you'll have a bad impression of New York if you only focus on the pimps and the C.H.U.D.'s.

Except, you know... keeping the ecosystem in balance and all.

There's a real kind of animal called a "coyote"? I was expecting photos of Kim Cattral.

/I'm confused.
 
2010-02-04 2:25:48 PM  
Unfortunately, rumors are that given the rabies outbreak among the raccoon population, plans are to immediately euthanize the coyote. I hope that given the press in A.M. New York today, it will be caught, tested and released upstate instead.

Where's PETA?

I've heard recently that most "coyotes" in the Northeast are actually coywolfs. See this synopsis (new window) of a recent genetic study.

Kim Cattral is a cougar, dumba**!!

My brother was eaten by wolves on the Connecticut Turnpike.

Yes, coyotes were put on this earth by god to eat your livestock and fark up your poory secured trash cans. No possible way they evolved to fill a niche and surely there will be no repercussions if we were to wipe them out.

Once came face-to-face at night with a coyote on the streets of Charles Village in Baltimore.

I know, I know... cool story bro....
 
2010-02-04 2:30:21 PM  
Interesting, but how the hell did it get to Central Park? It's surrounded by a dense urban area that is surrounded by water that is in turn surrounded by a dense urban area.
 
2010-02-04 2:30:58 PM  
I hope it eats all the feral cats. Then gets shot before spreading their diseases.

Their current population of scavenging coyotes and coy-dogs evolved to fill a niche created man, therefore they are fair game.

bridge or tunnel

Subby, where the hell've you been? That stereotypical view of NYC is three decades old. All the muggings that happen in Manhattan occur further south, on Wall St.

It probably took the D train.

From what i read, they said either it most likely came along a rail line that went underground, or it swam up the river. Could have came over a bridge but very unlikely. Given the cold temps, i think the amtrak line sounds pretty plausible.

THIS. The other night my younger brother called from Phoenix weeping like a little girl (he's in his 50's) to tell me that when he let his two chiguaguas out to go pee before bed, a coyote dashed out from the shadows to snatch one of them up and carry it off into the night.

I made sympathetic noises for a while, and when I finally got off the phone my wife asked what happened. I replied that some farking coyote narrowly missed eating one of my brother's dogs.

If he hadn't been standing in the doorway, the coyote would have gotten both of them... ;)

Catapult, or strapped-on rocket.

graffiti artists don't tag.


If Tavern on the Green is temporarily out of some kind of meat, well.. now you know it was really coyote this whole time.

And his hair was perfect.

Don't release it, kill it. Coyotes are no good.

came face-to-face with a coyote moose hunting last year. Bag limit on them is 3/day, 3 in possession, so I aimed, and by the time I had my rifle up, that songdog was so freaking gone the Dead wanted him to tour with them.

/how gone
/real gone, man

So it was a coyote in NY in the late 70s?

A coyote moose once bit my sister.

Damn thing didn't really look like it was frolicking to me.
 
2010-02-04 2:37:56 PM  
I guess the fact that New York is the safest large city in the United States just hasn't penetrated the public's perception yet.
