• Coyote enters Chicago Quiznos sandwich shop; lies down in cooler<br><br>
• Animal control captured passive coyote<br><br>
• The city catches 10 to 15 coyotes every year, especially in the spring<br><br>
• If uninjured, the coyote will be released in the wild<br><br><br><br>
CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- For one day, at least, the roadrunner was safe. It seems the coyote was hankering for another kind of fast food.<br><br><br><br>
Employees and customers at a downtown Chicago Quiznos sandwich shop were stunned to see a coyote walk through the propped-open front door Tuesday afternoon and lie down in a cooler stocked with fruit juice and soda.<br><br><br><br>
"It wasn't aggressive at all," restaurant manager Bina Patel told the Chicago Tribune. "It was just looking around." (Watch the coyote take a rest in the cooler Video)<br><br><br><br>
Employees and customers calmly cleared out of the restaurant, though some took the time to finish their sandwiches and snap some cell-phone photos, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Animal control officers took the passive coyote away after about 40 minutes, after a curious crowd had gathered outside.</div>

Awwwww. I bet it was scared because it had somehow gotten downtown and couldn't find it's way home. I hope animal control didn't kill it.

I always disturbs me at how they have to take animals away with that noose thingy. I know it's probably necessary and probably doesn't hurt it, but he must of been really scared. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> It was a cute story anyway. I saw it on the morning news. I hope he is ok and that they are able to release him.

I heard on the radio this morning that it was released to a forest preserve in Barrington, IL. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:">
