A wily coyote showed up in Manhattan, N.Y., this week, leading police on a critter-hunt that lasted two days. The chase involved four patrol cars, two motorcycles and a helicopter before the coyote was subdued.
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. It's gotten to be a regular event, sighting coyotes in Manhattan. This week though, a very wily coyote showed up in town and led police on a critter hunt that lasted two days. Wile E. himself might've been impressed by the effort. While no Acme rockets or TNT were used, the chase did involve four patrol cars, two motorcycles and a helicopter before the coyote was subdued.
