As with Miwok, Morgan’s rescue was not one that was planned. We already had FOUR coyotes in one small habitat. We got the call and email the day before Easter 2013 that a man had what he thought was a wolf pup. It had been dropped in the road by its mother in the middle of a move. He spotted it and waited to see if she would come back and, when she didn’t, he picked up the tiny pup and took it home to try and save.
At first he was doing okay with the puppy formula, but then the man began to realize he had something on his hands that probably needed a license (both coyotes and wolves require a Class II Captive Wildlife license in Florida) and his fiancée had become very ill. He could no longer care for the wee guy.
