BLACKSTONE – Robert J. Dubois was relaxing at his lakefront home overlooking Harris Pond last week when he happened to glance out a window and saw a hungry pack of coyotes scampering across the ice.

The same coyotes, he says, have been spotted by other neighbors, including one resident who reported seeing a pair of them near Precious Blood Cemetery off Shore Drive.
