Wiley & Big Boy

Wiley was born in 1999 and is one of the biggest coyotes at SWCC.  He was brought to us because he was being kept as a pet but did not like people.  Fortunately for us, he allows a few select volunteers to enter into his “territory” to feed and clean.

Wiley is a very talkative coyote and loves to snarl, yip and bark at visitors during tours.  Wiley lives with his roommate, Big Boy, who was also being kept illegally as a pet.

Big Boy came to SWCC with a short, bobbed tail, but we aren’t sure what happened to him in his former life.  Big Boy tends to be a shy coyote and hang back, while Wiley greets everyone with a growl.
