    Coyote strolls into downtown Quiznos

    http://www.suntimes.com/news/325903,...yote04.article

    So a coyote walks into a Quiznos . . .

    Sounds like the start of a joke.


    It's not -- although dozens of downtown folks got a good laugh out of it Tuesday.

    A male coyote really did wander into the Quiznos sandwich shop at Wabash and Adams -- in the Loop! -- just before 2 p.m. Tuesday. Workers had propped open the front door for the warm afternoon, and in sauntered the roughly 30-pound, 18-month-old wild animal.

    "The cop didn't have to go far, since he was next door at Dunkin' Donuts." That was enough to keep me laughing all day!!!!

    ROFLMAO, Yakwoman.

    I feel sad for the coyote, though. I saw the video last night on the news, and the poor creature looked stressed, weak, and tired. I doubt he would have gone in there if he wasn't ill and/or injured. I hope they can help him and release him back to the wild.

    I like Quiznos better than Subway, so I have to congratulate the coyote on his good taste!

    Yeah, they released it... near my town! I will be on the lookout tonight for a coyote in my yard. Bunny will stay inside tonight and we won't be having subs for dinner!

    We do have a lot of coyotes around here. I have never actually seen one though.

    I was so happy to hear that they got a veterinarian to check him out and be prepared to treat his injuries if needed prior to his release. I was afraid they would just consider him to be a pest and kill him. I noted the expression on his face and his posture in the video, and clearly something was wrong.
