The latest: a dolphin in Brooklyn, a coyote in Manhattan, and a seal in Staten Island. Sadly, when marine animals start swimming in our waterways it’s usually cause their sick and the high pollution they encounter doesn’t help them any. But good news for the coyote, the NYPD gave chase and it escaped!
