Charlie the Coyote

Writer and photographer Shreve Stockton took in a baby coyote when his parents were shot for killing sheep in Wyoming. She is documenting Charlie’s life with her and Eli the cat on the blog The Daily Coyote.
If Charlie demonstrates the need or desire to be out in the wild, there are places around here I could safely set him loose. There’s no question he would survive in the wild just fine - his instincts are very intact (more on this later), and though he is gentle and attached to me and to MC, he is afraid of other people.

From the beginning, I have made the commitment to let Charlie decide his destiny; to do right by him without attaching my own desires to the outcome or interfering with human logic. You can join me in seeing what unfolds.

MC refers to a coyote expert who is helping with Charlie. Scroll down the blog and check the archives for adorable baby pictures. Link -Thanks, Bill!

Miss Stockton, good for you! It's ok to kill animals for fun or to "protect" man's interest, but do something nice, even if it is out of the ordinary, and one gets a negative label. As for the negative comments,try to ignore them. It appears you know what you're doing. Keep up the good work.
