NEW YORK (AP) — For the second time this month a wild coyote has been captured in Manhattan.
Parks officials say a female coyote was captured in the sprawling Stuyvesant Town housing complex in lower Manhattan Sunday morning.
The coyote was sedated and delivered to Animal Care and Control where veterinary staff examined and fed the animal. Officials say the coyote will be released in a wilderness area in the Bronx.
Earlier this month, a coyote was caught in Riverside Park and later released in a Bronx wooded area.
Most coyotes pose no danger to people.
