Hal the Coyote from Westchester
I have been a bad bad blogger. But whatever, it's my blog.
I definitely should have given shoutouts to this kyewtie sooner, tho.
Who's a wily and curious 35-pound wubbie who ran all buckwild through Central Park, freaking people out and making authorities (even choppers!) bumble around like dorks trying to find him? HAL THE COYOTE FROM WESTCHESTER!!!!!
Maybe he chilled with the rat brigade, the pigeon posse or the secret squirrel service late at night. Maybe he lay across the giant slabs of schist that protrude from the ground, intrigued by the glittering mica by day, the artificial glitter from lights on 59th street, CPW and 5th by night. Did he sprint across the Sheep's Meadow? Play king of the hill at Belvedere Castle? Sweet sweet freedom!
I bet he had a great time in our majestic Olmsted oasis...just like my high school boyfriend and I used to back in the day.
