Coyote capture!

NYPD seems to be very proud of capturing “the” coyote recently seen running around lower Manhattan.

But I would bet that if there is one coyote on the island, there are many more that haven’t been seen. Coyotes are very adaptable creatures, and if they can find food and shelter in any environment, they will fill that niche.

Manhattan should, perhaps, welcome its new neighbors, considering the problem it seems to have with rats.

New York RIP

Via Instapundit:

Welcome to ‘New York RIP’ (that’s RAT Information Portal): Map marks the blocks with the worst infestations… and you’ll want to avoid the areas colored red.

In the red: This area around East Houston Street has some rodent issues

You got rats on the west side
Bed bugs uptown
What a mess this town’s in tatters I’ve been shattered
My brain’s been battered, splattered all over Manhattan
