Late last year, we announced the arrival of five coyote pups—four females and one male. Before coming to us, the orphaned animals had been rescued and rehabilitated in Massachusetts. They're a great addition, as Scott Silver, Director and Curator of the zoo, explains, "Having these animals at the Queens Zoo is an opportunity for people to see coyotes up close and to learn more about these fascinating yet often misunderstood animals."

As suburban expansion continues, coyote sightings are becoming more common. The animals are generally shy, though, and tend to avoid people as much as possible.

The pups are now on exhibit in an expansive grassland habitat where they can thrive. Make sure to visit the whole troupe and give them a New York-sized welcome.
