Southborough resident Deb DeGregorio shared information about what appears to be a sickly coyote on Middle Road yesterday.
We’re all aware that there are coyotes in Southborough. But whenever an animal is sickly, it obviously poses a greater threat. So just to make you aware, I’m sharing her information.
Yesterday we spotted this poor guy on the hill [of Mount Vickory by Middle Road]. His right rear leg is injured and he has a limp. He has mange or something; his fur is gone on his right side (you can see this clearly if you zoom in on the pics) and his eye looks terrible too. He was scratching himself for quite a while and then laid down and rested. . . I am pretty sure he is a coyote. (I googled ‘sick coyote’ and saw other images similar to this).
She took some great pictures. Honestly, they make me feel pretty sorry for the fella. (But then, I don’t have children or pets in that neighborhood.)
