Richard Pichardo says he was on his way his way to work when he noticed a commotion along 9th Avenue near 28th Street.
“When I first got here, I was curious just like everybody else, and I asked what was it,” he said. “When they told me a coyote, I figured it was just a small one.”
But when he pulled out his cell phone to capture the chase, the animal he saw was anything but small.
“When I caught a good video and I seen the size of him, was large, 60 maybe 70 pounds,” he said. “And if he was standing up, he would be taller than me.”
