Howls grow over coyote in Princeton

Yes, you read it Princeton!

New Jersey, the most densely populated (with humans) state in the nation, is now home to more than 3,000 coyotes, according to the state Division of Fish and Wildlife.

One of them has taken up residence in Battlefield State Park, not far from the Ivy League university itself. Several dog walkers there have reported run-ins with the coyote and labeled its behavior as "aggressive."

In the town that keeps "Hold that tiger" on the pop charts, a hold has been put on the coyote's capture. Officials fear the repercussions from animal lovers if the coyote is killed.

Maybe Princeton should negotiate a 'relocation' with the San Antonio Spurs. A little shot of 'aggression' sure couldn't hurt their mascot.
