A Coyote!

LAND & WATER of July 19th, 1884 reported that a coyote had been found in Epping Forest and given to the superintendent of the zoological gardens of London. Rumours circulated that four cubs were imported to England with the understanding that the animals were in fact foxes, and came to the UK via sea freight on a ship owned by a Mr J.R. Fletcher. It is alleged that the animals, at the time quoted as being 'Prairie wolves', were released into the wilds.
