A coyote was struck and killed by a car in Lincoln Park this morning -- and officials say they are seeing more of the predatory animals roaming city streets in search of rabbits, rats and other prey.So, not only do I have to worry about getting robbed at a CTA platform, having my car broken into, or being assaulted, I also have to worry about running into a coyote? You have got to be kidding me.
The coyote ran out into traffic on Fullerton Parkway north of the Lincoln Park Conservatory and Lincoln Park Zoo just before 7:30 a.m. today, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.
The coyote was dead when Chicago Animal Care and Control officers arrived on scene, according to Cherie Travis, executive director of animal control.
