The 58th thing about living in New York that is so great it's practically unbearable

There is currently a coyote -- hell yeah Hoss, a real wild motherfucking coyote -- running around in Central Park.

According to the Post:
The coyote "has been hunting birds and ducks ... The staff has found several piles of feathers."


"I've seen it all - squirrels, raccoons, you name it," said Frank Salinas, 64, a retired dog walker. "I'm not concerned, unless it's a Wildebeest."

The only thing that could be better? If the coyote turns out to be a werewolf.

Update: The wily one has been captured! Apparently, authorities closed in while he was about to ignite his Acme rocket. Parks department officials also seized posterboard, wooden laths, quick-drying ink, several pounds of birdseed, iron pellets and a really big magnet. _ Flop.

Dunno, if Frank Salinas gets his wish and the wildebeests follow, that would be pretty cool.

All that said, it's nice to see that, for once, New York is the follower of its dorky, preppy little brother to the south. We've had coyotes in Rock Creek Park for a couple of months now...
