The good people over at The Times City Room noticed something disconcerting today: animals are taking over the city. And it’s not just coyotes. It’s roosters, raccoons, swans, skunks and a baby goat. Here’s the rundown: stray roosters are wandering the West Village; eight rabid raccoons have been found between 79th and 196th streets; skunks are attacking a Bronx housing complex; and Prospect Park swans are being more friendly to each other, but is it to gear up for a fight against humans? At least the goat seems to be friendly. But it is hyper-active, so escape is likely imminent.
