Here is some photographic proof, courtesy of F.Trainer on Flickr. He explains:

these little beasts were eating some chicken that workers had carelessly left in the yard....they were not scared of flashlights or camera flashes, strangely however, if i repeated the word "chicken" a few times they would scamper off....

Our theory is that these critters migrated south from Williamsburg once they grew tired of feeding on hipster garbage. If anyone spots a coyote in Carroll Gardens, please let us know!
