A coyote was spotted on icy Lake Michigan near Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood.
The coyote was out on the frozen lake off 59th Street — at least a half mile from shore — and continued heading away from land.
A Chicago Police Department helicopter tried steering the coyote toward the shore, but eventually the pilot had to leave to refuel.
The fire department responded with equipment and an ambulance close to the scene, just in case.
There’s no update on whether the coyote made it to shore.
