Citizen complaint of the day: You always remember your first coyote

Coyote in Roxbury

A concerned citizen filed a 311 complaint around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday about a sighting at Dale and Regent streets in Roxbury:

Coyote in the area. I've been living here for years. This is my first sighting in the area.

Free tagging: 


A week or two ago he was spotted on highland ave. With the turkeys and rabbits in the area now looks like he's going to be new king of the urban forest. Long live the king!


I'm in Fort Hill as well and I've seen at least four of them together in the neighborhood. Sometimes I only see one (this morning around 7:30 one of my dogs was going crazy and I peeped out the window and saw a huge one behind the house in the vacant lot there). They've definitely decided to stick around in this area because I wake up to them howling at night (and so do my three dogs). I've been in Roxbury for 5 years and this is my first time noticing them. I see them daily.

I live on a busy street in Concord, and in the last week we've seen coyotes, fishers and foxes. At least we haven't had any bears so far this year...

Happy to see that animals are adapting to unrelenting urbanization. Fishers are cool but scary af.


rats? If so, please direct to Maple Street in Grove Hall.


Curious whether this was filed with 311 as an FYI to the city or with the expectation something be done.

They've been sighted all around our neighborhood and I'm pretty sure one of them pooped in our backyard but I finally saw one run across the road about forty yards ahead of me a couple of weeks ago. Too quick to get a picture but cool nonetheless.

Coyotes have to lair up somewhere. Do you think they live in abandoned buildings. This could be Wolfen in Boston.

First off, thank you for reminding me of the existence of Wolfen--it was one of my favorite books when I was a weird little kid.
The coyotes in my neighborhood live in den(s) near some railroad tracks. There's not a lot of foot traffic there, so it's a nice place for them to stay away from people.
