NEW YORK - (AP) - A wily coyote is no match for the NYPD.
    
Police collared the creature near a sidewalk cafe in downtown Manhattan on Saturday morning.
    
The coyote was spotted shortly after 7:30 a.m. in the Battery Park City neighborhood. Officers tailed her up and down a marina and a Hudson River park for about an hour before using a tranquilizer dart to subdue her.
    
She is being cared for at the Center for Animal Care and Control.
    
Police say there were no injuries to humans or animals.
    
It is unclear if the coyote was the same one that was spotted in Riverside Park on Wednesday. At least four coyote sightings have been reported in Manhattan this year.
