There’s been an uptick in phone calls to Arlington’s police department concerning recent coyote sightings right here in town. And that’s raising some concerns among residents.

It’s an issue that pits wildlife preservation against human safety. There will be a meeting July 31st at town hall to address these concerns with residents.

ACMi’s Jeff Barnd talked to Arlington’s animal control officer about these creatures that at one-time were foreign to the Baystate. But it appears they like it here.
