    Residents Concerned About Coyotes Living in Roslindale

    Some coyotes moved into a Roslindale neighborhood, and it has some residents concerned.

    (Published Tuesday, May 28, 2019)

    There are a few "for sale" signs outside of homes on Ardale Street in Boston's Roslindale neighborhood.

    Some people aren’t pleased with the new neighbors moving in; a family of coyotes.

    “We saw the animal control truck and asked what was going on and he said there was a coyote mom living in a den with two babies," said Maria Campbell.

    Several people called animal control, but the mayor's office insists that it's a state issue.

    "They said there was nothing they can do," Campbell said. "I'm concerned. Does something have to happen?"

    The Arnold Arboretum a few blocks away, and an urban park is even closer.

    Animal control says they're still looking into it the situation, but no final decision has been made.
