Music City Center Responds Promptly to a Surprise Visitor

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Music City Center had an unexpected visitor on January 14, 2019.

At approximately 10:20 pm a coyote ran past the MCC security checkpoint at 7th and Korean Veterans Blvd.  The coyote entered the MCC where the boat show was loading-out.  Apparently, the coyote was looking to purchase a boat, but instead went into an exhibit hall where members of the MCC team were working.  The team sprang into action and were able to safely secure the coyote in the bathroom by rolling down the gate. 

The MCC contacted Metro Police who in turn contacted Metro Animal Control.  About 30 minutes later, our unexpected visitor departed the MCC. 

“I am proud of our team along with the efforts of Metro Police and Animal Control in their efficient and prompt response during last night’s occurrence, ensuring the safety of everyone around,” said Charles Starks, President/CEO of the Music City Center.
