That coyote probably was walking along the banks of the Charles river overnight via Watertown and ended up on the field where Joni Hendrix and Bob Marley onced performed.

Ship them coyotes over to East Boston, there are Rat’s left and right over here, but let them finish eating all the Rats in Allston first.

Don't worry, people - they'll move on when they run out of food.

And they're more scared of you than you might be of them.

...of that old joke with the punchline:
"If he's more scared of me than I am of him, then that water ain't fit to drink!"

I saw him (or maybe a sibling?) last week while I was stopped at a red light at the corner of memorial drive and river street around midnight. He was just trotting along in no hurry like any other jogger lol. It was so big I thought it might be a wolf, but the state trooper in front of me didn't seem alarmed. I've lived here my whole life and that's the first time I've seen a coyote in Cambridge!

A few weeks ago, nice night, window open - woken up at 3am by chickens.
Chickens in Arlington? got out of the bed, put head my in the window...
No chickens, its two Coyotes off in the distance! (in direction of the cemetery from E.Arl.)
My prof said before she lived at her house in Winchester one was killed there in the backyard.

Now where's my cast-iron coffee pot and campfire!

Wait until deep winter. An ambulance will come through, siren running, and set off a chain reaction chorus travelling across the landscape.

I live in Medford and this has happened a couple of times: siren howls, coyotes howl, other coyotes hear them and howl, more coyotes hear those coyotes ... like an audible census meets grapevine game. I have friends living on the other side of the Lawrence Woods and we have timed the progress of the howling going both ways.

I used to live around there and while I did find their tracks near the stadium once, I've never seen one in person.

The question is always coyote or coywolf?Coywolves have moved throughout Greater Boston. Unlike coyotes, coywolves aren’t afraid of humans but their occasional curiosity can be disconcerting.

I thought I was noticing fewer turkeys recently around here...

Who'd win?

Before anyone says "coyote", have you seen the turkeys around here?
