Here's video of the coyote release today. It’s estimated NY has approx 14,500 breeding pairs of coyotes in New York, & not uncommon to see them in suburban and urban areas. Please enjoy viewing wildlife from a distance and never approach a coyote. https://t.co/UgzzK4twft pic.twitter.com/5kS8KYv7c9— NYSDEC (@NYSDEC) March 28, 2018
UPDATE: The coyote that was wondering around the mezzanine level of the State Museum in Albany on Tuesday is in good health according to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. The animal was released back into the wild on Wednesday morning.
There's no indication of how the coyote got in the building in the first place and there are no reports of the coyote making any contact with people.
