Considering the current state of our animal shelters, that is not good news at all.
The entire first floor of the two story shelter in Manhattan is still shut down for various cosmetic procedures (like painting) which results in severe lack of cage space and overcrowding on the second floor of the facility. Moreover, the shelter has been running out of basic supplies in recent weeks, such as wet food and (as of last week,) dog leashes.
One is forced to wonder how an animal shelter conducts dog adoptions without something as basic and necessary as temporary dog leashes?
Of course the local news tried to put a "positive spin" on yesterday's story. According to the report on ABC, the coyote (after medical evaluation) "will either be released to the wild or sent to a zoo."
Well, let's see what actually happens.
