Cops Issue Rabid Coyote Alert In State That Just Banned Coyote Hunts

Days after the Commonwealth of Massachusetts banned “cruel” coyote hunts, local police and animal control officers are warning residents to be on the lookout for rabid coyotes, like this one that came after a woman in her own driveway on Lynnbrook Rd. in the Boston suburb of Lynnfield. Lynnbrook Rd. is just half a mile from I-95 and fifteen miles from downtown Boston, yet it’s also within 1,000 feet of protected wildlife habitat – the perfect retreat for urban coyotes.
