WESTBORO (CBS) – A coyote captured in Downtown Boston Friday afternoon has been released into a much more wooded area.

The coyote turned heads as it made its way around the area near South Station. Animal experts were eventually able to corral the animal.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston reported on Saturday that the animal was taken to Tufts Wildlife Clinic in Grafton and tagged before officials from their organization and Mass. Fish and Wildlife released it into the woods in Westboro.

    According to the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, “It is against state law to capture and release coyotes into another area.” See Section 3 of the “Resolving Conflicts with Coyotes” Section at .

    Why was this coyote captured and released into another area–apparently against state law?
