If you see the coyote, leave it alone. That is the advice recently given by the Foxborough Police Department and animal control officer Sue Thibedeau.
Recently, residents have been reporting a three-legged coyote located in East Foxboro. Those near the coyote are strongly advised to avoid any contact with the animal. The coyote is still considered wildlife and it's behavior around humans is unpredictable.

Drive around Foxborough and you'll eventually find some empty storefronts, buildings and lots. In the latest edition of "Visions for Vacancies," we're looking at the former home of Bradlees on Commercial Street.

When Foxboro High School seniors Mike Pipher, Saad Akhtar and Alex DeCenso wanted to give back to the community, their solution was to come up with a way to deliver tips for healthy living for students.
To help promote their message of living a well balanced lifestyle , the three boys created a website named “Two-Minute Tips” that is designed with sections for parents, students, and schools.
“We really wanted to give back to the community, the schools are unbelievable and the teachers are great influences towards kids though the school. We really wanted to pay back what we got in education” Pipher recently told the Foxboro School Committee.
