An urban coyote captured in downtown Detroit following a nearly hour long foot chase will soon be in the Michigan countryside.

The adult female that led two animal protection officials and police on the chase was spared euthanasia today when it was transferred into the custody of the Michigan Humane Society.

The animal has been shipped to a licensed animal rehabilitator in Oxford, where it will be evaluated. The Humane Society says the animal will likely be released in a natural area somewhere in southeast Michigan.

City policy in Detroit mandates euthanasia for captured animals except under special circumstances.
