It’s a new month, so of course there are more coyote sightings. A USPS worker spotted a coyote around 2 a.m. on Thursday, May 7 near LaGuardia Airport at Ditmars Blvd. and 82nd St., Port Authority confirmed. Port Authority police and NYPD responded but the coyote ran toward Elmjack Field, Port Authority said.
There have not been any sightings since, Port Authority said. Of course, this coyote might have been trying to leave NYC–there have been a lot of essays about leaving NYC lately.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said “this is New York, and I would suggest that the coyote may have more problems than the rest of us.” The coyote was named Hal after he was captured, and he was sent to live in the wild. It’s unclear how he arrived, although he possibly hitched a ride on a garbage truck or paddled across the Hudson River. Just chasing the New York dream like the rest of us, Hal. ” data-id=”19799372″ data-link=”https://amnewyork.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/24324_image.jpg” class=”wp-image-1.9799372″/> Photo Credit: Tara Conry
Everyone has a story that involves LaGuardia Airport–and now a coyote does as well. A coyote was spotted near Queens’ second-best airport on Thursday, and this latest spotting came one week after one was captured in Middle Village. Of course, these are hardly the first coyotes has been spotted in the concrete jungle. See other times coyotes came to the big city.
