I liked the part where they jumped into the swimming pool.

I don't know if "netting" a deer is a very good idea. Luckily for the officers, they were unsuccessful. It would have made a great vid clip, though.
Coyotes, deer. You all got any black bears up there?

There was a black bear about 15 mins north of the bronx a few years ago, in a parking lot of a suburban shopping center. I've seen hawks attack pigeons, crows attack (well, try to anyway) squirrels...it can be like america at times, right in the bronx.

A few days ago they shot a bear in Livingston NJ. They said it was in the attack mode since it was on it's hind legs !! What a farse , they don't even know bears don't attack on two legs ! From the film the bear gave no evidence of aggression but city people don't have a clue.

Maybe i will have to get that urban camo pattern ive seen afterall.

Although Im not sure how the residents of the Bronx would react to gunfire in their neighbourhood... Business as usual?

Well considering the state...The conversation probably would've gone like this:

Officer One: Alright we caught it!
Officer Two: What is it?
Officer One: I think it's a funny looking dog. You know, like a greyhound, taco bell dog mix?
Officer Two: What do we do with it?
Officer One: Let's train it to be an attack dog!
Officer Two: Great plan, just look at how aggressive it is!

At least that's how I think it would go!

Those Poor Deer

I feel sorry for those Deer. The police couldn't catch them. Well duh, deer are quick and good jumpers. They took a dip in the pool. Boy, looked to me like the deer were struggling for dear life to get OUT of that pool! It does make one wonder how wild animals venture into such urban areas.

That was rather funny i'll bet those city folk didn't know what to think and I like what Anthony said that was rather amusing. City people I sware,we could last in the city but can the last in the country.
