Police say the animal was spotted Sunday morning around 40th Street and 11th Avenue.

Officers chased the coyote down the West Side Highway, all the way to Chelsea Piers.

They shot it with a tranquilizer dart, then turned it over to a Brooklyn animal shelter.

A shelter spokesperson said the coyote was “relocated to an appropriate habitat.”
