• Mattapan Coyote hits Twitter


    In the same vein as the Bronx Zoo Cobra, the coyote that was running around Mattapan on Thursday had it's own Twitter account, @MattapanCoyote.

    The first post came in just minutes after the coyote was reported to be running around the Mildred Avenue area of the Boston neighborhood.

    "I'M FREE! FINALLY!" said the Twitter account.

    The second Tweet actually referenced @BronxZoosCobra, asking it to hang out sometime.

    When animal control officers neared the animal the Twitter account taunted their equipment.

    "Is that a pool net?" tweeted the account.

    After the coyote was captured the Twitter account revealed its supposed motive.

    "I was just trying to see @BarackObama speak in Manchester."
