A woman pushing two children in a stroller spotted the coyote this morning on Grayfield Avenue between Mt. Vernon and Houston streets, steered well clear and called police. Limpy has been prowling the neighborhood for months, has not seemed to bother any people, but has evaded capture and continued to limp in all that time.
Chris Ferry snapped a plastic Wile E today at the Dedham Mall, which really is sick of geese, but which may not realize the decoy will only work for a few days and then the geese were realize it never moves and ignore it.

The Brighton Allston Improvement Association report a coyote was spotted this evening at the EF property on Lake Street. It provides some tips on "hazing" coyotes that do not involve maneuvering their TNT-filled cabins onto railroad tracks, including:
Shake or throw a “coyote shaker” - a soda can filled with pennies or pebbles and sealed with duct tape.
City Councilor Matt O'Malley, who represents some of Boston's more countrified areas in Jamaica Plain and West Roxbury, went on a Twitter tear, well, tearette, tonight about all the coyotes his constituents are reporting
I’ve also seen a huge explosion in the number of rabbits around the neighborhood. Unfortunately for the rabbits, these two phenomena ARE related.
Roving UHub photographer Daniel Moran was up and about at 6:45 a.m., which turned out to be a good time to spot a coyote planning out his day on Weld and Cerdan streets, which, depending on whom you ask, is either West Roxbury or Roslindale.
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.
