While driving in hyde park, many drivers had to stop or speed up to get a head start in an attempt to grab a dog running in and out of traffic. At least 5 -6 vehicles were in pursuit with the unspoken team effort to save this poor dog. As cars stop in one both lanes, people jump out collectively. The dog b-lines across the street to avoid strangers, the same time one impatiant drive cuts around worried drivers who stopped and watched, he floors the gas and crushes the dog. Who then limps toward a small crowd for help crying uncontrollably.

BJ Ray reports he was walking his two dogs in Stony Brook Reservation (where West Roxbury, Hyde Park and Roslindale come together) around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday when the dogs darted after something - and promptly got attacked by about six coyotes.

3 or 4 dragged May off out of my sight. I was running through the woods at top speed and screaming. Rosie was unscathed and May was missing for a good 2 or 3 minutes. I was screaming for her (and freaking out) until finally she popped out from behind or under a rock. She had a few scrapes and a cut on her back. The coyotes didn't run away, by the way. They were half surrounding us and barking/howling. It was pretty harrowing.
