Excavators are tearing up all the farmland and some woodlands around the Northampton Crossings shopping megacenter, which despite the name is actually located in Lower Nazareth Township. Warehouses, a new Target and hotels will decorate the new, much wider, roads.
Naturally, this screws up all the wildlife. So some stupid coyote walks into Sears, looking for an Acme Rocket Sled or an Acme Self-Guided Aerial Bomb or something. First, he gets shot with a tranquilizer gun and is driven off in a pickup truck. Then, some Wildlife Officer figures this mutt might have rabies, so they chop off his frickin' head.
