Lower Manhattan has finally been graced with the animal’s presence: a coyote was seen near North Cove Marina Saturday morning in Battery Park City, police say.

The First Precinct was on the case and went to the marina to find her — at least according to the police it is a female.

The police saw her running by a nearby park, streets and the marina for about an hour before she was cornered — where she was contained, darted and secured. She is currently lodged at the Center for Animal Care and Control in East Harlem.  Police say no one was harmed in the capturing of this coyote.
