Okay, the guy in the middle has a dart gun.

The guy on the right has a tranquilizer speer.

What's the guy on the LEFT got? A tranquilizer dart pistol... or a firearm?

Did you read the whole story...they have Coyotes in suburbia and this is what Fish and Game says:

"We used to say, 'No, you don't have to be worried.' We're not saying that anymore," said Gordon Batcheller, a biologist with the state Department of Environmental Conservation."


Worrieed? Worried?

ITS A FREAKING cOYOTE! COMES INTO YOUR BACKYARD....SHOOT IT FOR PETES SAKE...worried about the noise..use a silenced 22....

O wait sorry this is NY.....my bad

Are they sure it is not a diminutive werewolf?

Has anyone seen the junior senator lately?

The true definition of AAAAA-musement: Watching city folks try to deal with a wild animal.

"The coyote is a survivor, I reckon he's got to be;
He lives in the snow at forty below, and Malibu-by-the-Sea." -- Ian Tyson

And has been known to jump on a small child, at Tucson...
