In the Boston suburbs, where coyote sightings and attacks on pets are on the upswing, residents are urging town officials to take steps to control the population. Last month in Haverhill, a coyote bit a 9-year-old girl, and last week in Wellesley, coyotes attacked two dogs in separate events, killing one just outside its owner’s house.

Open Space rangers in Boulder, Colo. killed two aggressive coyotes on Sunday after one jogger was bitten and another animal showed no fear of humans. “Historically, coyotes were shot at,” said Jennifer Churchill, a spokeswoman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “Now people don’t scare them off, and we’re creating really nice habitat for them through irrigation. We’re making them too comfortable.”
