You better hide your kids.  Hide your dogs!   Hide your cats! Word is the Southie Coyote is back in town.  The coyote has been spotted numerous times in the past week –mainly along Day Blvd. near the beaches and Moakley Park.  See report below via Citizens App on Thursday around 11am.

Coyotes are no strangers to Southie.  Apparently they come to the neighborhood for the Canada Geese and the lively nightlife.

Police warn people to beware – coyotes can be aggressive and like to eat pets – so be aware of your surroundings – especially early in the morning.  He’s the coyote below just basking in the sun at Moakley Park! Thank you to Boston Time Lapse on Twitter for sharing the photo!

    Whoa!!! That is no good! The fact that wild animals, such as coyotes have been showing up, even in urban and suburban areas is not a good thing. The best thing to do is to not leave pet food, or human food, for that matter, out where stray animals can smell it, and get to it easily. Coyotes are dangerous, and not only can pets be attacked, mauled and even killed by coyotes, but so can people, for that matter. Be careful out there!

    I saw it! November 6th. It was hungrily stalking seagulls that we’re wading in the under water fields of Joe Moakley park in broad daylight.

    Is sedating and relocating him an option? Don’t coyotes also go after small children?

      Agreed! He’d have plenty to eat in the Blue Hills.
