A white woman has apologized for calling police on a black man bird-watching in Central Park on Monday morning after the two argued about her unleashed dog.

She was walking her dog Monday while Christian Cooper (no relation) was bird-watching at a wooded area of Central Park called the Ramble.

"I'm taking a picture and calling the cops," Amy Cooper is heard saying in the video.

Asked if he'd accept her apology, Christian Cooper told CNN he would "if it's genuine and if she plans on keeping her dog on a leash in the Ramble going forward, then we have no issues with each other. "

"That's important to us birders because we know that dogs won't be off leash at all and we can go there to see the ground-dwelling birds," Christian Cooper said.

Amy Cooper told CNN she was walking her unleashed dog, knowing that it was against the rules.

Christian Cooper said the dog was "tearing through the plantings," and he told Amy Cooper the dog needed to be on a leash.

Christian Cooper said he then pulled out dog treats.

Amy Cooper said he was throwing them at her dog.

The video begins with Amy Cooper pulling her dog by the collar and telling Christian Cooper to stop recording.
