I Saw a Coyote Today
I did! I was driving on the VFW Parkway in West Roxbury (within the Boston city limits but a fairly woodsy area) and a coyote ran across the road headed toward a more wooded area! I couldn't believe it. The first one I have ever seen.
There's an article in today's Boston Globe about a whole coyote family that lives near this area: Coyotes in West Roxbury
There's also some photos too, but I think you need to go to the site to get to the link.
