Have you seen a coyote in Waltham? Want to know more these canines?

The Waltham Police Department and Animal Control are holding a coyote talk, “Living with Coyotes,” on Wednesday, April 23.

The talk is from 6-8 p.m. at the Government Center Auditorium, 119 School St., Waltham.

John Maguranis, of Project Coyote Massachusetts, will give the talk on human and pet safety, history, behavior and ecology, facts and myths, tracking and identification, “hazing techniques,” diet and resources.

I have seen these in my back yard. I live across from the conservation land on Hardy Pond. I have small dogs and they often sneak out from the woods. It is very scary and I think the population is getting out of control. Don't call the animal officer in Waltham though, she'll tell you to chase them. Yes, sure.

Good point Bab's. We should allow more people to hunt them within city limits.

I feel bad for animals, they're just trying to survive in an increasingly shrinking world, a world where we take the little they have from them. It isn't easy, certain numbers increase because of the imbalance we cause and it begins to work against them. But all that said we need to control the coyote numbers because they represent a danger to other species. But you have to wonder that a government and its agencies which allow non-native species, snakes in particular, to be sold to people can actually get a grip on anything much less this issue.

Snakes are a concern of yours? Pretty sure the winter killed off any non-native species.
