Attention! Two ducks stranded across from Christian Science plaza There are two ducks taking shelter in the enclosed walk way. I don't know how long they've been there but I'm worried about their condition. I've called animal control but they aren't very helpful.

Arlington Police acknowledged yesterday the town is besieged by turkeys, who have taken to strutting about the place as if they own it:

As if the snow hasn’t put enough of a wrench in the morning and afternoon commute it seems we have a flock of turkeys gathering on some of our busier streets. Now don’t tell them I said this but they are not the smartest birds. This is part of the reason it can be challenging to navigate around them and they don’t seem to understand that your car is way bigger and they should get out of the road.

Wicked Local Brookline reports a resident called 911 to report a "30 to 40 pound" raccoon stole into her house by way of the water heater. Sadly, Wicked Local Brookline does not tell us what happened next, because that's a story we'd read to the end.

Around 5:30 p.m., we were heading home from the supermarket (yeah, after kickoff). We were in the right lane inbound on Washington Street, coming up on West Roxbury Parkway. There, in the left lane, just standing there, looking down the road - but not at us - was a coyote.

I slowed, flashed my brights and it ambled off across the road and up into the woods on Bellevue Hill.
