So Hal the coyote had a year of roaming the planet and living off the land, and then a week or so ago some New York City health services guy zapped him with a tranquilizer dart, and then Hal was caged, muzzled, bound up and whatnot. And now the poor guy’s dead…inert matter. Coyotoes are renowned for their exceptional survivor skills — they’re wily, adaptable, resourceful — and know more about the ins and outs of big city life than most humans. If Hal had never been caught he’d still be alive. We all know this. The metaphor is obvious. This is a movie. Somebody should step up and do it. I’ll pay to see it in a theatre, and I’ll buy the DVD.
