Police and multiple agencies eventually caught up to him near Newark Liberty International Airport where they corralled him into a fenced-in area and tranquilized him.
He was then transported to Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue. They’ve been taking care of him and they also gave him a name. It’s Ricardo.
It’s unclear where Ricardo came from. Nobody got hurt.
