We know Boston is known for being a generally brainy/nerdy kind of town. We didn’t know that extended to our local coyote population. Once again a coyote is spotted downtown – this time on a patch of ice on the Charles River near the Charlesgate Yacht Club on the Cambridge side. Animal control tried to net the critter — when it splashed into the freezing water and after a short swim got to land. Last seen, it was heading to the Museum of Science. The museum’s website says there is a “Live Animal Presentation” at 1:30 p.m., so maybe the coyote was just heading to work. Or maybe lunch. Animal control says not to approach it.
