Last year there were plenty of coyotes spotted around the city, including a few in Central Park, so it's not surprising that we just got an alert about another one spotted in the area. We've received word that a coyote was reported in Central Park between West 77th Street and West 81st Street, sometime over the past half hour. CBS is also confirming that the NYPD has reported a coyote on the loose in that area. We'll update with more information when we have it... be safe out there!
