Boston TV news is abuzz tonight with the news of the hulking coyote photographed with a cat in its mouth in Auburndale.
That’s one big coyote and the caught-in-the-the-act photo definitely sends chills up the spine of our new kitten owning household, particularly since we lost our last cat to coyotes (not in Newton).
Much as it rattles me as a pet owner, I do think coyotes wandering our neighborhoods is just a normal part of the suburban eco-system we’re living in … sort of like the wild turkeys but with a bit more disturbing appetite.
Have you been spotting them lately on your streets. Seen any specimens as healthy as this big boy? If you do see one, be sure to report it here. Like anything, the more information the city has, the better job they can do managing it.
