Coyote released after wandering into West Acres mall
A staff member spotted the animal about 2:30 p.m. and was able to block it off by shutting the door into the hallway, said Alissa Adams, the mall’s marketing director, adding that it never was in any public areas of the mall.
The city’s Animal Control captured the animal and released it about 3:30 p.m. south of town, where he “ran away happily.”
“It’s something we’ve never seen before,” Adams said. “So it was definitely a first.”
