NYDailyNews It’s called a coywolf, but there’s nothing modest about this neighborhood danger. The coyote-wolf hybrid has been stalking New York City’s northern suburbs this week, bringing a lurking danger to the area. The Clarkstown Police Department warned the canine — also known as an eastern coyote — has been spotted in Rockland County towns. “It looks larger than your average coyote,” Sean McCormack, a Nyack plumber who captured video of the dangerous criminal, told CBS New York. The coywolf was prowling a woman taking out her trash at the time of the recording, he told the local CBS affiliate. “It seemed to be stalking her and kind of followed her back up onto her driveway,” he said. The predatory pup has also been spotted north of Nyack, at a gated community in Congers. Residents around the Rockland County hamlet were warned not to feed the wild animals, who have a wide appetite. Dogs should remain on a leash, cops said, and cats should stay inside “if you are truly concerned with its health.” “DO chase them away and make noise (bang pots and pans) if you don’t want them in your yard,” Clarkstown police warned in the Facebook post. “Of course, if you don’t mind them then watch them from a window quietly as to not scare them away.” Cops said they’ll call in a licensed trapper or shoot the wolf if it becomes an immediate threat to the public.
A “Coywolf” which is a rare coyote-wolf hybrid has been spotted and photographed in New York State, and due to the large size of the animal, officials are warning local residents to keep their children and pets inside until the strange creature is captured or put down. Personally, I think the coywolf looks pretty awesome, and that I would look badass walking through Central Park with this Coywolf on a leash. Don’t put the Coywolf down, send it to SportSmasher.com studios, we will make it our mascot and give it a good home.
