2008_07_coyote.jpgYesterday, we mentioned that a coyote was spotted near the Horace Mann School in the Bronx. It turns out the coyote was a pup of about 6 months. Animal Care and Control took the little fella to its Manhattan facility and nicknamed the 9-pound coyote "Van Cort," since he was near Van Cortlandt Park. A specialist told the Post, "My guess would be that he was part of a litter. Maybe it was hunting and it got lost." Van Cort will probably be headed to an animal sanctuary upstate; more pictures here.
