Check this out:
The Lincoln Park Coyote
Watch the video, and you tell me who's smarter :-)
They should give him some food, humanely catch him and set him free somewhere good for him.
Poor little guy. He's not hurting anyone, and they're harassing him like this. Coyotes typically don't bother people, but officials use that as the reason to bother them. If we stopped putting up 7-11s and Old Navys everywhere, maybe the coyotes would stop losing their territory and "bothering" us.
