Hub coyote sightings on the rise

By David L. Harris/ Roslindale Transcript
Saturday, August 20, 2005

The howling you may hear in the city at night is the wail of coyotes.

David Sherris of Jamaica Plain already knows just how ominous the sound can be. His pet terrier, Maggie, was killed by a coyote this spring.

``I really didn't know they were in our back yards. Now I go in my back yard and I'm looking over my shoulder,'' Sherris said.

City Councilor John M. Tobin is calling for a city task force to look into the coyote encroachment in Boston neighborhoods.

He's not alone. Animal control is also on alert.

``I've noticed a dramatic increase in sightings,'' said Sgt. Charles Rudack of Boston Animal Control.

``We're not used to them being in the city. . . . We can't trap them. We're restricted. Nobody wants to see these unfortunate situations happen. We need more guidelines from the state.''

Coyotes have been spotted not only in Jamaica Plain back yards but also on Hub roadways.

Why are there so many coyotes getting a taste for urban living? A referendum passed in 1996 makes the trapping of coyotes and other wild animals illegal under Massachusetts law. The trapping ban will likely make the job of the task force even more difficult.

As a first step, the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals suggests city residents stop feeding the coyotes and keep dogs on a leash.

``I live in America, and I don't want to worry that my own child is out in the yard,'' Sherris told the city.

I see coyotes all the time. I have run into about 10 so far this year. They don't strike me as a dangerous animal. They look like the weigh 35 lbs wet. I still like shooting them though.

Doesnt ANYONE think for themselves any longer?
Why do 'city' people seem to need governement assistance with every aspect of life?


"I live in America, and I don't want to worry that my own child is out in the yard"

They have no clue what it means to be an American...if they did, they wouldnt worry, they would simply deal with the situation. Anymore, the average citizen disgusts me with their inability to survive without aid. Pathetic little sheep.

typical masshole bullshit it's hilarious when these anti hunting fucks have to deal with their pets getting eaten and children threatened... I live outside the city in a fairly rural area - its overrun with yotes! and they are getting pretty fearless since no one hunts them...

Hey Byron - interested in a road trip

Of course this MORON voted to ban trapping.




Masshole mentality.

Easy solution :



Oh, wait, this is in MA. In that case, then perhaps this will have to suffice :

Great, now I know where they are coming from, the Massholes are bringing them here.

Masshole mentality.

The whole state is full of 'em. I moved away 13 years ago and haven't looked back. Just wait until they get the bears coming back like in NJ. The stories out of NJ about bears are even better.

As our western friends say: "Shoot, shovel and shut up." Too bad they've about outlawed guns and shooting in these states. "For the children" who will be the victims of their stupidity.

I am currently living about 5 miles from the area to which this story refers. I live in a fairly dense suburb but I have had both deer and coyotes in my back yard. I wanted to shoot them so bad, but it was illegal.

I wish a coyote will show up in my backyard. I'd like to have a new fur cap.

Someone needs to write to Sen. Kerry and ask how he'd get rid of them. After all, he's a hunter.

Or at least he plays one on TV in an election year.

Here's the problem:

No, Sherris, you don't live in America. You live in a socialist dictatorship run by the Royal Family of Kennedy. Now pay your taxes and stop complaining about the King's wildlife!
