Wellesley was a real zoo in 2012

Animals went wild in Wellesley this past year, keeping the town’s animal control officer busy and residents on alert (any other major sightings that we missed? Photos welcomed):

*The town hired goats to clean up a man-made mess at Boulder Brook Reservation.

*A moose and a scorpion also visited town in 2012, with the little guy causing more of a scare than the big guy.
