The Yonkers Animal Shelter sent one of their staff members to the park and I contacted him when he arrived at the park. He told me he had her in sight. When I arrived at the park I saw him standing on the path above the field and as I got closer to him I saw her for the first time. She was lying in the shrubs very still, shaking with fright. At first we thought she was injured as she did not move. I had brought a can of food and a paper plate which I placed in front of her. She did not move towards the food. I sat a little apart from her on the rail pretending I was also eating out of the can. After about 10 minutes she gulped down the food. I went over and added the rest of the food on the plate and she came forward the slightest bit and ate the rest.
