Explain this! (You Can Do It).

Why is he taking a train ride?

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

ANSWERS

Guess this coyote really enjoys traveling. Last February, it hopped onto a light-train stationed at the Portland International Airport in Oregon. No one is sure how it got there--an airplane ride has been ruled out. A wildlife official lassoed the omnivore, meaning it eats anything--including small mammals, birds, carrion, and fruit, before the train departed for town. It was released at the far edges of the airport property. A spokesperson says: "It ran away and bounded after some field mice." Coyotes can run at a speed of 40 miles per hour.
