A second coyote has been captured in New York — this time in Queens.

Police say they tranquilized the animal and captured it just before 8 p.m. Tuesday. The NYPD says it's likely the same one that got away after being spotted hiding near a house Monday.

It's being cared for at the Center for Animal Care and Control.

The capture comes after authorities collared one near a sidewalk cafe in downtown Manhattan on Saturday morning.

At least four other coyotes have been spotted in Manhattan this year.
